I am not sure I am just nervous that it might not be a good idea for him to join I want him to be around the kids. my husband says that he will get good benefit's. I guess what i want to know is what is the reserves, is he going to be around, what benefits is he talking about if their is benefits what benefits does his family get. I hope you guys understand what kind of information i am looking for.

I'm also wondering what advice you are after.
In my opinion, he can join as long as it doesn't affect your household income too much. If you can still pay bills and feed the children then what's the problem?
He wouldn't be earning much as an apprentice anyway.

Why shouldn't he? He'd get GI benefits, including tuition assistance if he wishes, and it's not a full time commitment like the army would be. Not to mention, there's a paycheck involved for his time. What are you not sure of?
