Hello, so my husband has had this long time dream of joining the military, recently he mentioned it to me to get my thoughts and feelings. He's considering joining guards instead of becoming active since he's married, has a full time career, and now we have a three month old. Being very pro-military I gave him my blessing and told him I'm here to support his dreams. He's talking with a recruiter today to get some answers to his questions before making a final decision and I've felt like an emotional wreck. How can I be supportive of this without letting my emotions get in the way? We are Christians and it is his belief that God is calling him to serve. Our LO is a total daddy's girl, even though she's so little will it hurt her that her daddy will be away for basic and training for a few months? I would be proud to join all of you military mothers, but this is a completely new concept for me. I was heartbroken when my uncle got deployed for a year and I had to help watch after my young cousins. I can't imagine it just being me and our baby girl for awhile. Is it easy to find help and support? I live far away from my family, I live next door to my in-laws but it still feels awkward and lonely between us.
Well that escalated into a vent, my apologies! Thank you
