When someone posts that their husband/boyfriend/significant other enlisted, why do some say "We" are in the Army/Navy/AF/Marines? "We" are not, the enlisted is.
Thank you all for the clarification on the use of "we". It seems that some use it as a generalization to make explanations easier to family and friends, some use it because it aids in the support of the actual enlisted, and others use it because they really believe they are part of the military!
I can see how having to deal with the aggravation of moving all the time, not being able to see your significant other, being the only parent for extended periods of time, and other military family related issues can become quite a headache. I sympathize (which means I don't understand completely, I have a general idea of how you feel.)
As for all the women who think I'm going to be a "horrible mother in law", I admit to being a nosey nellie, and that's all it is...being nosey. I am not an interfering isabelle.
I read a lot of the posts on this forum and don't comment on many of them because I have no clue what it's like to be in your shoes (wife of an enlisted.)
I will ask questions in the future, and I expect to get bashed because some people think that unknowledgeable means stupid. In my eyes, the only stupid people are the ones who don't ask questions.
