My spouse is new to the Army. Does it get any easier to get used to the stress and new rules?
He is still in AIT but already I am sick of dealing with all the stress. We have a one year old son who really loves him. I could really use some advice about how to deal with all the new situations. I am completly military illerterate lol. I love my husband and support his decisions 100%, but I fear for him and our family. What is in store for us? What if he is deployed? How do I find people to help with questions who wont think I am complete idiot? Thanxs for your help

as a 20 year vet I can guarantee that it will only get easier as time rolls along. Check with the family services agency to see if they have a support group for the wives of trainees. they usuaklly get some old timers wives in there to help the new wives learn the ropes.

The best way to get used to it is to assimilate...get involved with the base wive's clubs and hang with those ladies. They'll help you get through it and you'll be part of the EWC (Enlisted Wives Club)in no time.

Even though I've been out for many years, I can say it does get easier. Basic training is what separates the men from the boys. It just takes a little time to get adjusted to the military lifestyle.I have some family member who are currently serving stateside and overseas, It seem to me they are getting all the... More
