Me? A military wife? hmm....

well.... maybe!

My wonderful husband has been talking lately about possibly joining the Air Force. I am totally fine with this... I think...

There are a lot of benefits to him joining the air force:
1.) They would pay off Josh's student loans. (Too bad they wouldn't pay mine!)
2.) We would have medical, dental, vision, etc...
3.) Shopping tax-free on base
4.) free travel!
5.) Free housing or at least C.O.L.A. (cost of living allowance)
6.) food and clothing allowance
7.) Decent pay
8.) Sign on Bonus possibility!
9.) military wifes groups

1.) possible deployment, though less likely than with other services
2.) 6 weeks of Basic Training away from me
3.) having to move where they send us. (hmm... maybe Hawaii though?) ;-)
4.) I can't think of anything else...

So yeah, looks like the pros outweigh the cons. We will probably go this weekend and talk to a recruiter, just to see what they say, and see if Josh would be able to work on UAV's like he wants to. (and maybe get a higher rank because of his AA and A&P.

So, we will see... our lives may be radically changing.... ;-)
