I was curious if any active or even retired military moms had any advice on joining the military as a mother?
I am pretty sure I do not qualify for anything other than the army being that I have tattoos! But I am a "military brat" & have always known I would join, just had a lot of setbacks due to my childhood! But I have been in ROTC & military school since I was 13. My grandfather served 26yrs in the Air Force & my dad was a Marine! My two oldest children will be taken care of but my two youngest are pretty much 100% my responsibility. DF might join in a couple years but for now it's just me. Any advice on custody, child support, traveling, stationing, etc? I want to go to school & be trained specifically for an intelligence related career.
If you need anymore info about me please just ask!
So, I'm not in the military.. Please keep reading !
I'm currently 9 weeks pregnant and taking my courses for EMR, I eventually want to be a tactical paramedic.
I am considering applying for a med tech position and continuing my education through the military, however, I will have a baby. My SO work as a civilian and can be home every night so I'm not too worried about that aspect.
I am interested to hear about what it's like working in the military, away from your family and baby and what you all think and feel about that?
Your personal experience 😊
