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
Hello everyone... I have been engaged to my soldier for about 2 years and we are finally tying the knot next year after he gets back from deployment. Now I would like as much information for a new army wife as possible.
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.
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!
