My husband and I have been stuck living in separate states for almost two years. By the end of his next deployment it will be three. We had to leave our tradoc unit so my husband could deploy. A month after we got to ft hood he was on orders so I went back home to ohio. I have lupus and needed the help from our families to take care of our son. My husband's 9 month deployment turned into a two month deployment when his units mission ended faster than anticipated. I couldn't come home and not long after he was fenced in for another deployment. We want to live together and continue our life but were struggling. Fort Hood is hard for me to live at and my lupus isnt progressed enough for me to enroll in EFMP yet. Not to mention the cost. While my husband was in Iraq he reenlisted and asked to be moved but they told him he couldn't leave hood. He reenlisted anyway because he wants to retire. But he's worried if we stay at hood he won't be able to take care of me because of how fast they deploy and how far from home we are. We have tried compassionate reassignment reenlistment and now he's trying to reclass. Does anyone have any advice? My husband loves the army and I don't want him to have to give it up for me but if he says if they still tell him we can't move before his contract ends he won't be reenlisting. Please help!
