My hubby and I are in that one percent. We both spent four years in the Air Force and met while serving overseas. I also served almost 6 years in the Air National Guard. I chose to get out of the military the fall of 1991 when I was pregnant with my second child, shortly after the Persian Gulf War.
My unit didn’t go to the Persian Gulf because a very crucial piece of equipment was out for repair during this time. Although my unit wasn’t activated, a few personnel were. Children had to stay with their grandparents when couples were activated for duty. These are the kind of sacrifices that are made when people choose to serve their country.
I loved serving my country, but I knew I could not do both jobs well.
