I'm newly married to my SIT who is currently away at Basic. I have a few questions and concerns and I guess I'm just not sure where to go with them. My husband is Army Reserves National Guard with a Wheeled Vehicle Mechanic MOS. We have spoken before about Active Duty and wrote it off, unsure if it was for us. Of course he's not home to discuss these things, but after talking to a friend who is married to an Airman I'm contemplating it all. Of course, I would support my husband whether he chooses to go Active Duty or not, but I am curious about the chance of deployment. Does it really change when going active duty? Is there less of a risk if he doesn't? I'm not even sure if my husband being deployed is a definite, really. Also, do they tend to ship soldiers out where family cannot join often? Is there somewhere anyone can direct me to in order to get more information on all of this? I would just like to know our options and understand what I need to be prepared for should my Soldier come home wanting to go Active Duty.. Or if he doesn't and there's information I don't know. From my understanding, being NG he has the once-a-month weekend training and a once-a-year 2 week training and that's it. The idea of deployment wasn't even made a reality to me until today. Any help or information on this would be greatly appreciated! Thank you.
