I'm so excited to have found this board, my husband is joining the Navy leave for Meps Mar 28 and of course the recruiter told us all the good stuff. What I want to know is, are your husbands gone often? Is it difficult to get leave for vacations etc? Regardless I will be there but I just want to hear from someone who is not a recruiter or salior, what life is like for wives. Oh he wants to be a hospital corpsman.
