Husband thinking about joining army reserves or air force?
Ok so out of nowhere my husband says he is thinking about joining the army reserves or maybe the air force. I think he is living in a fantasy world because he doesn't think there would be any chance of him going to fight in the war. He wants to join for all the benifits to support us and to help us afford a house in the future and have insurance, all that's great but it doesn't really work well when my husband ends up dead. Please tell me the truth about what will happen if he were to join either of them.

fyi if he joins the reserves you will only have tricare prime when hes deployed......so the whole insurance thing is out UNLESS he goes to fight in the war......and in this day the chances of going (even in the AF) are pretyhigh

air force is the best choice. the deployments are less and its more family friendly than the other branches. im an army wife. and its hard. but the insurance is great. about the dead part, life is not guarented. nothing is. hes thinking about the future. and sometimes the military pay is good and free college and...
