    DH has been considering switching to the Force for a while; he's a CFO with a CPA but hates doing what he calls meaningless desk work, no matter what it pays. He's spoken to the recruitment officers, and they said he could easily rank up with his qualifications and Reserve experience.

    My uncle is a Warrant Officer, he's gone all the time He's here so fleetingly, and spends months and months away with only a rare one-minute call to let us know he's okay. I know he has an important job and I'm so proud of him, but I worry for him. And it's hard not hearing from him for months.

    I worry about DH joining as much as I hope he joins. I'm from a military family, all the boys and some of the girls join the Reserves at one point. So I know what is required, I know what I have to sacrifice, but I've never experienced it with my partner, so it feels new to me, and scary.

    Even though with studying two hours away he'd often leave at 5:30 am and drag himself in at 11pm 5 days a week...it's going to be different and harder.
    Don't worry, I'll be your military-wife friend soon. You can say "Told you so!"
    It all depends on where you're posted, the 2 and a bit years we were in Sydney he only went out field once. Then we moved to Townsville and now he spends most of the year away. I'd move back to Sydney in a heartbeat.

    If you look at the crime stats that would be out of Townsville. It's rife here. And it would have to be at own expense, something we just can't afford.

    You must be strong! Recently I've been whinging about how dh has had to work 1-5 hours back, leaving me home with the kids and no break. I now remember just how much harder it can get. *hugs*
