Military Families Military Families

I feel like it is long overdue in here.  I understand a lot of the wives are young and on your own for the first time, but you can't stop your life.  You keep going for yourself, your children and your dh.  I don't care if he is at BCT, deployed or in Korea.  Pick yourself up and carry on.  He wouldn't want to think you are home, sitting on the couch and crying all the time. 

Many of us have been there.  I was pregnant with my 3rd when my dh went to basic and I was living 700 miles from any family. I had our son on my own when he was at AIT.  We went to our first duty station for a year and then he went to Korea for a year (left while I was pregnant again).  And, 12 years later, we have been through that and 5 deployments with another in the near future. 

I'm not trying to be mean.  I remember how hard it was, but you can do it.  You will realize how strong you are.  Just wait until it is one of your children at Basic, that is so much harder.  My oldest graduates on Friday.

Id agree. As one person who originally felt like ppl were being "mean" to me and I didn't listen,.......boy I regretted not listening. This group is super helpful by showing tough love exactly when you need it!

 Thanks for posting, im new here and just reading the post in this group and keeping busy at home has been helping me cope with my dh at osut. I knew it wasnt going to be easy but by staying strong for our family helps him focus on training. And seeing that there is so much support from other wives who been there is comforting. Thanks again :)

Congrats on your oldest child gradution!
