My dh wants to join the National Guard
Hi Everyone! I'm Shannon (26) and dh Joe (29) wants to join the National Guard. He says he would go active, but financially we would be better off in the beginning b/c he can get his leave pay from his current job and the military pay. But he will probably go active next year if he can get it approved. I'm all for it but a little weary about it with this war going on. He has already spoken to a recruiter and taken the ASVAB and it looks like if everything works out he will probably leave in June or July. He is trying to wait until my car is paid off so that will be one less bill for me to worry about. We have been married for 7 yrs and we have no children except for my 3 labs, Buddy, Belle, and Sassy. (They are my babies)
My father is retired Army and I practically grew up around the military so I was excited when Joe decided he wanted to do this.
Right now Joe is a fireman and an EMT so I'm kind of used to being alone but only for a couple of nights at a time. So I'm a little worried about that to.
I am currently working full-time as an accounting assistant at a local community college and I go to school at night for medical transcription.
Well, I just wanted to introduce myself to all of you. If any of you have any advise, feel free to post it! I would love it!
