This Army life is NOT for the faint of heart. So many of my so called Army wife friends have packed up, left their husband and moved back home. This is not what I want to do ever I'm so in love with my husband I'm just really sad that we can't be stationed closer to familiar surroundings and our family. Not just for me but our son, my husband admits to missing home so badly more and more.
Our dreams of buying our first home, raising our children near grandparents and family, being near close friends and a church we can actively be a part of seem to just be on "pause" til our Army contract is up in 2 years. That's not forever I know but hard to "endure" and wait for when it's all you want.
I don't even know if a change of duty station is possible, we've been where we are exactly 2 years. From what my husband says it makes you look bad in he commands eyes and even negative counseling statements. Its hard to think he would tarnish his perfect record for a simple request to move units. Who knows. I think I'm just complaining bc I've become so comfortable here at home during the holidays.
