My next door neighbor signed up for the Army reserves last year. He's leaving for a year's deployment to Iraq in two days.
He used to be an EFM (Eligible Family Member). His wife used to be a Diplomatic Security Specialist. She's a teacher now. They decided the FS life wasn't for them after two posts. They have two daughters, ages 8 and 10.
I wonder if this is an improvement over the FS for them.
I sure hope if I'm an EFM it doesn't make me want to quit the FS and join the Army.
I sure hope the year goes by quickly (and safely) for them.
