Though this time I think he's serious. DH has been working on reenlistment for a while now and things keep getting in the way (no slot, EFMP problems, etc.), and while we were on leave last week, he decided hes done. He is taking all the trouble as some sort of sign to get out. Sooooo, now I have to make a plan for going back to a non-military life lol. I can handle it either way, I just wish this man would make up his mind and keep it made up!

Geez! Though I don't think guys can really make up their mind well. It seems my husband always says he wants to do something different, and always comes back to being a mechanic. It's what he has known for so long.

Mines a mechanic now, but I don't think he can do much with it yet in the civilian world. He'd need all sorts of certifications and training on the electric/computer aspect of the job. I don't know what he's going to do lol. I hope the transition classes (ACAP I think?) help him figure that out.

He could always check out the Helmet to Hard hat program.  They train ex-military to do a trade in the labor unions for free.  My DH did the electrical one, and worked as an electrician apprentice for a while when he was out of the military.

 I'm sorry, that has to be really frustrating.  Maybe the wind will blow differently and all the paperwork will suddenly get done.

Awesome, thank you! I hadn't heard of that program.

My husband is so indecisive too... Never about getting out though! Good luck to you! :)
