Any mothers in the us army or Maines?

I am a mother of 2 daughters. One is 4 and the other is going to turn 1. I have been thinking of joining the army or marines for some time now but obviously having doubts. I have wanted to do this since High school but at the time I had my first daughter so I stopped thinking about it. My MAJOR concern are my kids. There father doesnt agree wtth me to join but i want to.. If i do my problem is I feel like I am being selfish. Although there are many things that can be good for my kids in this I feel like the time I would spend away would make them suffer not having a mother for that time. What does everyone think? If you were a mother would you do it if this was something you really wanted to do?

Married? You have 3 dependents for Marines you will need a waiver for that. You also have to know that you will spend 13 weeks at Recruit Training, 10 days off then off to MOS school for a time depending on what your MOS is can be from a few weeks to over a year. That means little contact with your children. You can... More
