 Hello all! I'm Jamie!

My husband sighned up for the Army today. We talked about it Monday night, and when he found I had no problem with it he went to the recruiter Tuesday morning. After feeling out "the book" we ran around like crazy gathering documents. Now we are waiting for the call. Now that everything thing has slowed down I realize I am completely ignorant on what I am getting myself into. I read the booklet and I think it caused more questions than it answered. I asked the recruter alot today but I have so much more I want to know. I tried to go the MYarmylifetoo.com but It was full of the new launguage I have to learn and I kept getting turned around. So any helpful suggestions on preparing myself and my two toddlers for our new future would be much appreiciated. Ohh and is there a book on all these abbreviations!LOL

From the crazy mind of Jack and Josh's Mommy

Welcome! Don't stress about the new lingo, you've got time to pick it up! There are books out there too, one is called Married to the Military. Just be flexible, and be prepared for anything and you will be fine. Any idea what he will be doing?

Military.com is extremely helpful for me. Also, I don't know the site addy, but you can google something like "list of military acronyms" and you'll find some helpful stuff.

Good luck! I'm in the same boat, just a few months more paddling, so let me know if I can help! :)
