    Default Active Duty Females?

    Any mommies that are active duty online? If so, what branch? How long have you been in? How many children do you have? Planning to make it a career?

    My DH and I are both active duty - I'm Navy, he is Marine. I have been in about 9 years and have 4 children (just had twins). I am pushing the half way mark and struggling to make a decision... just wanted to chat for some advice on career choices

    DH is AD Navy now but I was also AD at one time. Dual military was definitely not for us once we started having children, so for sticking with it for 9 years!! I am not too familiar with the Marines and thier roations but I have a bad feeling that from here on out "normal" 6 month Navy deployments will be a thing of the past. DH just got back from a 9 month deployment and from what I hear 8-10 month deployments are becoming the norm. I am sure you are well aware of this, but I know for me that would be the deal breaker. Good luck on your decision though! That would be a tough one.

    There are at least two of us; used to be 3. I'm an AF computer programmer and so is dh. If I was in a different career field it wouldn't work for us, but it does. I think after the 8 year mark you might as well finish, but that's just me. We have the reserves that you could also retire from though in case I really hate it the next time my enlistment comes up. We don't do it for the money.
