I just posted this in Mom Confessions until I realized that CM had a military group so sorry if you see this twice. Okay so I'm 22 and have a two year old daughter. Back in high school, I always wanted to join the military but sadly I cannot due to a birth defect that I was born with. I met my fiance a year ago and he too has a two year old son. He joined the marines after high school and made it through boot camp but then had to leave the military because his mom fell incredibly ill and he had to stay and take care of her. I don't know if finished boot camp or not when this happened. Well tonight we were both talking and for some reason, joining the military popped into my head and I got depressed (I'm pregnant so it happens) I was telling him what I thought the pros were to it all and what other military personnel has told me and it seemed to spark an interest to him. He says he's now thinking about joining again. I'm excited because I see the military as a life of travel. I may be wrong here but that's how it seems to me. Then I got to thinking that I don't really know what the military life entails. So ladies, what's it really like to be a military mommy/wife? Also, if we have children with other people, what happens if he joins and we get shipped across the u.s? Do we completly lose them?
