I'm unsure what to do.

Usually I like to be involved with the frg. Right now though, dh's unit is gearing up for deployment and he's on rear d. Not only that but he's actually been assigned a semi- permanent detail completely away from squadron. So, do I get involved with the frg knowing that he isn't involved with his unit for the next 9-12 months or do I back off? There is a meeting tonight but no one has contacted me or invited me. What would you do? And please no frg bashing. I've had awesome experiences until now.

I guess it depends on what kind of time commitment you're willing to make... I, personally, wouldn't, but I am pretty much wanting to lay low these days.

If it's something you enjoy doing, you should just do it.

It all depends on whether or not you want to be involved in "something". I like being involved, so I would do it.

I like being involved. Dh isn't real happy right now so he's not very supportive.

Has he been rear d before? He's about to become more involved with his unit than he ever wanted to be! LOL

He's never been rear d. But hes been pulled completely from his unit. He is working with contractors on post now. Like, he doesn't even go to pt or to his nco's for his schedule anymore.

Oh, I see. That is completely different from my DH's rear det experience. Still, don't let that stop you from being involved in something you enjoy! :-)

Yeah, if he was actually with rear d it would be different. He wants to deploy but because of dwell time they won't even consider it. It's just a very odd and frustrating situation all around.
