kicking down some knowledge. ** feel free to add your own
There will be times that your husband will be gone. When he is deployed, other than a dire situation, he will most likely NOT come home.
Please do NOT go to his CoC for stupid bullshit.
Stop complaining about housing, the commissary or any services offered on post. Remember, they are called "Privileges" They can and will be revoked at any time.
Don't call or text your husband a 1000x a day. If he's not answering or replying that usually means he's busy doing something, in formation or a brief. I'm sure he will call/reply when he has a free moment. If he doesn't, that does NOT mean to come up to his work place looking for him. Ps. Arguing with him in the parking lot of his work place, during the duty day, will only get him laughed at.
Be cautious of what you say and do on post and off. No, you are not the SM but your actions reflect on him.
Just because you are the Base Commanders wife, doesn't mean you are untouchable. Stealing from the BX will get you arrested, no matter who you are married to.
The open door policy applies to the SM, not you.
PAY YOUR BILLS!!!!
I can't stress this enough. No, you DON'T need a new Coach purse. You DO need Electricity, Water and FOOD.
Be prepared to be alone at times.
Get used to disappointment.
Mission will always come first, no matter what.
Just because your husband works with females doesn't mean he's sleeping with them.
Start a savings, shit happens and the CoC gets tired of you coming in every other month with excuses on why you can't pay your bills.
Your husband wears the rank, not you.
Stop wearing his PTs!! You look like a dipshit walking around town with them on.
Being a wife is NOT the hardest job in the military.
