Well, In my opinion, the AIr Force is a better way to go for a man with a family. Their training is often shorter, deployments are MUCH shorter, family housing is much nicer, and the AIr Force is more family centered. I say this from experience. My husband has been active duty Air Force for 12 years. I have friends who are Army and I know their situations. Their hubbys are often deployed for 8-12 months or longer, their housing is not up to the same code as Air Force, and for the Army its much more about the solider fulfilling the mission than the military helping the families. I enjoy the military lifestyle very very much. We have 3 kids (11, 10, and 4) and have been in since my oldest was only 1 month old. It's been so great for us!
