Posted 09:00AM on December 06 2010 by Jacqueline Goodrich | User Comments (28) Categories: Ask the Milies, Jacqueline de Moore Goodrich, Spouse Issues | Tags: Ask the milies, Dity, Jacqueline goodrich, Military moving, Pcs

You know those wedding planners that you can buy from Barnes and Noble that have a month-by-month or week-by-week checklist for planning a wedding?  Is there any similar resource for PCSing (both DITY and military move)?  I know I really could have used one, since this was my first PCS! ~JG

We felt this question was very important to post. It wasn't from someone seeking help and advice for a current military family, but something a veteran wife wanted to know about how this new generation of wives is living.

Ask the Milies: To stay in or not to stay in?

Posted 22:50PM on September 28 2010 by Jacqueline Goodrich | User Comments (6) Categories: Ask the Milies, Jacqueline de Moore Goodrich, Spouse Issues | Tags: Ask the milies, Jacqueline goodrich, Military spouse, Reserves, Retirement

My husband has served 12 years (including two year long deployments and probably another real soon) with the Army Reserves. For him to consider getting out when his enlistment is up, before he has 20 or 30 years in, would forgo all those years working towards a retirement. Not many people have a guaranteed retirement these days, sure the amount might not be a huge, but it’s something for the future!

Dear Milies,

Posted 14:03PM on September 01 2010 by Jacqueline Goodrich | User Comments (9) Categories: Ask the Milies, Jacqueline de Moore Goodrich, Spouse Issues | Tags: Ask the milies, Child birth, Military spouse

My husband is convinced that when he deploys and I go into labor that he can come home on emergency leave and be able to stay for a month... Is this true or is someone pulling his leg? ~Brigette 

Congratulations on the addition to your family, Brigette!

I didn’t invite the military to my wedding, but it came anyway. The decision to get married before Iraq had been a sudden one. I had less than two months to pull together my “dream” wedding.
