My husband told me yesterday that he had been thinking about joining the military for awhile. He finally made the decision.....and told me yesterday after work. I didnt believe him, I looked up and in his face I saw he was sincere. Our first child is due in JULY and he is not planning to enlist right away. He currently works for campus police at a college and feels that it is not going anywhere. He started working there part time when he was 19 to help pay for school, but he hasnt been able to get the classes he needs because of his demanding schedule. Now 5 Years late,r he has had pay increases and such but he doesnt feel like he is growing as a person. He feels that the going to the Air force will help him get a career he really wants, help mold him in areas he knows he is lacking, and most of all provide for me and our child. I support his decision.
Right now he is focusing on getting in tip top shape and making sure he researches EVERYTHING before he goes to talk to a recruiter . He doesnt want me to tell anyone yet because he doesnt want it to get back to his parents. (He doesnt want to be talked out of it. He was talked out of it before when he was 17) So, I had to get it off my chest and ask you all what to expect in this transition?
