  • completely personal opinion here and I'm sorry if anyone takes offense but I really think that if you want to personally join, I would go Air Force. They treat women a lot better than the Army does. TOTALLY opinion again!!!

  • The Army will try to keep you 2 at the same base. However, you both can deploy at the same time. I dont know how it would be if you went to air force and he stayed army. I would suggest talking to a recruiter about being in one branch and him being in the other. I would also suggest bringing your husband so he can decipher the bullshit they are going to tell you.
    Good luck.

  • Air force will take better care of you. Do you have a plan set up for the kiddos should you both be deployed?

  • I say go for it but make sure you have a plan for the children and your husband will have to be for it to or they will not let you join ask a recruiter or the 1st SGT can help too.
