I am an Army wife and mother to two. We are currently stationed in NY, though our home town is in Washington State.
I have been thinking a lot about joining the Reserves/Active Duty lately(the last year or so), as a way for me to further serve my country, finish my college degree (without loans) and to help the family position. My question is - Have any of you joined after getting married and having kids? What is it like? are you able to be stationed with your spouse, even if you are reserves and not AD?
We don't have a lot of family in this area (or any at all) for support during my training, should we decide to go this route, and there is the very large possibility/probability that my husband will be deploying to Afg for a year (or so) in the spring of 2011. Any advice/support/thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
