I guess this is kinda a spin of, but would you join the military willingly?  I am a ware that quite a few moms are against this.  I just wanted to see numbers thats all!

I wouldn't join the military, but my hubby is in the army. He's getting out in October. The military has some really great things about it, but we can't wait to be free to live where we want again.

Hubby's in now - he'll hit 20 years in 2018.  I am considering applying to JAG after law school.  It's a ways away, but something I'm seriously considering.

LOL..whoops, guess I should have actually looked at all the options. ;-)  I voted yes....but I've been there, done that, got quite a few t-shirts left.  LOL  However, I have thought about re-enlisting once DH retires(as early as June 2012).

Ummmm....I'm a woman....so willingly would be the only way I would join.  They can't force you.

But yes I would join if I weren't getting to old to do so.  I started to join and then found out I was pregnant with my oldest.

Sorry I guess I should have worded it different?
