Dh literally just got out of the army. We have no income currently and are both looking, I'm sure we will find something but not sure about the month or two between. He's signed for courses for firefighting but we still need to feed and house four kids. He is going to use the GI bill and is signing up for the National Guard. Does anyone have any tips of transition if you've been here before? I'm going to be bashed to h--l I know but I will still show who I am. 😕

I know we will be ok but I am stressed beyond belief right now.

Isn't there some type of credit union or bank or something that caters specifically to military families? Maybe you guys could get a small loan until you get to where you want to be?

You didn't plan ahead knowing he was going to be getting out?

We did but something fell through.

You should go to the military families group on here and ask those ladies.

DH got unemployment when he left the Army, and went to school on the GI Bill. It took a little while, but we're back on our feet.
