Say it ain't so

We went to talk to an Army Recruiter yesterday. And all I can say is, I can't imagine not being Navy anymore. It's all still in the works and nothing is definite yet but it's an option now. Serving through military is what we want and in the bigger scheme of things, branch does not matter. But our lives have been so involved with the Navy way of living for the past two and a half years that it's strange to think we could potentially be an Army family.

Army is sooo different. Not in a bad or good way...just a different way. It'd be weird to hear the restroom referred to as something different than "head." To hear "post" instead of "base." Advancements, ranks, rates, lingo...it's all so different.

Supposedly there's a warrior transition course Doc Handsome would take if he goes Army. Something along the lines of "trying to teach an old dog new tricks." So in otherwards teaching him to leave behind his Navy ways and integrate into Army ways. I sure hope they have a family/wife transition course....


  1. Oh wow.. I hope everything works out for you guys :)

  2. That is totally different! I hope it all works out.

  3. I wish you all the best of luck!!

  4. My husband did that. He was Navy for 6 yrs at San Diego Naval Base and then one day he came saying "they're pushing us out, I can't advance I'm switching". A year later here we are a Army Family still adjusting to the differences.

    Which ever way you guys go, I wish you the best of luck. If you have any questions feel free to ask!

  5. Wow! That's crazy! My whole life has been Army so I can't even imagine the idea of changing branches. Good luck to you!
