Do anything with your husbands unit, in terms of volunteering and the like?
Nope - I volunteer at my kids schools...
No I dont get involved with it.
I stay as far away as possible.
when i first got married and moved to K. Bay, I had some issues come up while my husband was deployed to Iraq. I met our command KV (key volunteer) who was able to help me and get things fixed. If it wasn't for her I don't know what I would of done. My family was thousands of miles away in FL, and couldn't help me.
After my husband finished his 4 in the corps, he went navy. I became an ombudsman, with the soul purpose of helping the young, new military wives. I did it at his last command and I do it at his current command. I write monthly newsletters, created command websites, and run the command ombudsman email address. its not to be confused with the FRG. The navy FRG does social events and plans activities for families. I work directly for the Chain of Command, and am here for families as a link between them and the command. I really do enjoy what I do. Its great helping families during deployment and homeport. And volunteers are a vital part in helping to keep morale high.
I used to do it all the time. I mean ALL the time. I loved it, too.
Now, with this Command, I refuse to be a part of anything. That is, the few times they ever do anything. I hate his entire squadron with the exception of a very small number of friends.
I made them cookies once...
