    I believe it is possible but you would need a dependent waiver and for this you are going to have to prove your children will be supported from both a financial and a support perspective when you are away on training and when/if you get called up for deployments.

    By the way, there is another thread on here that might shed some more light on this for you;

        I don't think you have to give full custody to your ex, I believe you can create a family care plan and then designate someone to have power of attorney. Please contact a local NG recruiter, they may be able to help.

              That is correct. You do not have to give full custody, but have a Family Care Plan in place. This basically states who will take care of your children while you are training or away for deployments.
