  • Lindalu2 - lol - ditto, only insert working in remote locations, doing a job they were't allowed to discuss at all, and Division issues for Squadrons and flights, TAD for TDY, and 19 yr of military (17 married, 2 yrs single military before that) for 21... ;-)


    I do think it takes a strong man or woman to be married to someone in the military - you spend so much of your time as a married woman (or man), but at the same time, a single parent thousands of miles from family or long time friends - with the worst of both those worlds...


     


    But I also think there are a LOT of jobs that require a strong person to do it, with an equally strong spouse to be able to handle the burdens and stresses from that job.


    My hat is off to all of them :-)

  • How many jobs out there. Do you have to worry if your spouse it going to live or die, or come home injured. I do not think there are to many out there like the military.

  • I don't know why the post I responded to was deleted - it wasn't obnoxious or anything.

    But, since it was deleted, I'll clarify my answer - I agree that it takes a strong person to handle being married to someone in the military, you have to put up with separations, dangers, moves, isolation, political crap being thrown at you by strangers, etc. You get to be a single parent but a married woman (or man), with the worst of both those worlds.

    It's a very hard road sometimes, but it can also be very rewarding and fulfilling, and my hat's off to everyone who walks that path.

    Just like it's off to people who do other hard jobs or are married to them - such as police, firefighters, etc.
