I am trying to decide if joining the AF Reserve would be a decent idea.
My husband is active duty AF and we have 4 kiddos. I am interested in joining for a few reasons, one- its a decent break from being stay at home mommy all the time. Give me a sense of accomplishment and personal space, but not as often as a civilian job requires. (unless I deploy I know). The money isn't a lot, but its a contribution. I wanted to join the military when I was younger but started my family young instead. I am going to school again and the tuition assistance would be great!
I have concerns though too, like basic... first off, can I do it without murdering the young, fresh from high schoolers? Can I run that much without dying? ;) Can I spend 8 weeks + more with Tech School away from my kids?
Husband is open, he sees benefits both directions like I do... any thoughts?
