Hello my name is Alexa,
I am 25 years old and a mother of a 1 1/2 year old and three step kids 12,11,9
I have been thinking about joining the military to better my families future but I’m on the fence because when your active duty they can move you anywhere and I don’t know if I can ask my husband to up and move out of state when he has 3 other kids.
I could do national guard but you don’t get as many benefits from it.
I just want some opinions with people in the military or spouses in.

Thank you so much in advance

My father is a retired Marine, my husband spent ten years in the Air Force and my son-in-law just returned from a six month deployment to Afghanistan. I have to say that military life can be hard but I do feel like they take care of their people. There is also great support in the military community. This is just my own experience! As far your husband goes, have you been able to sit down with him and discuss the pros and cons of enlisting? Perhaps, the two of you can make an appointment with a recruiter and figure out what’s required of you if you do join. Talk about your hesitations due to moving frequently and separations from your family. Wishing you luck in your decision!
