I am a former active duty wife, however now my husband is an af Tsgt crew chief reservist & civilian aircraft electrician. We live on base, however, a few of my active duty friends seem to look down on me because we are living on base at a new location. When he was active duty we didn't live on base, but now that we are at a new base I'm afraid to let anyone know my husband is not active duty for fear I will be considered almost a 2nd class military wife. My husband now is in a position where he can deploy both reserves and civilian back to back, and with the civilian position can go tdy with less than a month home in between. I'm at a new base and know absolutely no one and I have no idea what to do based on the treatment of other active duty wives who are at other bases.
