My husband got out of the marine corps in may. He has had no luck on finding a job so he has been Thinking about joining the army. I love being home with family but the military is where his heart is so I'm wondering if there are any bases close to Indiana? We just had a baby and I would really hate to move 18 hours away from family again.

Not to be discouraging, but it is really hard to get into the Military is you are prior service. As far as your question, I have not heard of one in Indiana, but there might be:)

Best thing to do would be talk to an army recruiter. A lot depends on his reenlistment code now since it's really a buyers market, but if he was a good squared away marine he probably won't have a hard time getting back in. Cool thing about being prior Marine is that he won't have to go through any of the other branches basic training :)

Welcome, congrats on your new baby!

Good luck to your hubby and hopefully you won't have to move too far, if at all.

 I have no idea of Army bases near Indiana.  Maybe the Army ladies can help.  Bump!
