We have been going threw a lot of hardship me losing my job and him being the only provider with all the bills. It's a lot we are barely getting by. As I continue to look for work with nothing opening up as yet. I can understand his frustration but still I'm not sure this is a wise step for our family. My children are all on there own except for my four year old. But I just feel they still need me here

How old is your husband? The only reason I ask is that if you've got 4 kids, AND already have grandkids...wouldn't your husband be a bit older than the enlistment age allows?

Not that it's my business, actually

The two of you need to be in agreement here, though, because if he joins up, you do get the childrearing burden, which it sounds like you may not be ready to do on your own (and to be honest, with 4, I don't blame you a bit!)

Yes, it's steady pay, and benefits, but there are sacrifices as well, and those you need to be in agreement and prepared for.

Good luck with your family discussion!
