FRG Leadership Change Up

Last night I was about to post about how happy I was that although there would be a couple of changes of command this summer, my husband’s commander would not be one of them.

Well, this afternoon I got a little surprise–the commander’s talents have been requested (read ordered) elsewhere. A whole other unit, in fact!

When the FRG Leader made the announcement at the FRG meeting tonight, one of the ladies turned to me and said, “Does that mean you are taking over?”

Heh.

Well, the new commander is married, but his wife has not shown any prior interest in FRG activities. So, one of the following will happen:

1. She will suddenly decide to be active now that it is her husband’s responsibility.

2. Our current FRG leader will stay on. If her husband were just moving to staff within the same unit, that would be more likely. With her husband in a different unit (though still in the division), I am not sure she’ll want to do it.

3. No one else will want to do it…which always for some reason means I do it.

How on earth I will manage if #3 is the case, I do not know. I’m really not sure I can with the baby coming shortly on the heels of the command change, plus having a rather intense placement for the League next year.

On the one hand, I am already doing a lot, and at half capacity I would still be better than no one at all. I suppose anything is better than nothing. Besides, it would not be for very long before the men returned…and then the job would be easier.

On the other hand, I can never force myself to do anything half-way.

I am getting ahead of myself, though. There are two other possibilities ahead of this option.

I will cross this bridge when, and if, I come to it.

    Have you thought about having co-leaders? We did that and it worked well for us. It would allow you to have some back up. Just a thought!

  6. The problem is we really haven’t had many people interested in FRG leadership at all.

    Right now I am the co-leader…

    Most of the senior NCOs wives are not interested, the other LTs are not married, the junior enlisted’s wives mostly have several young children. Besides, lots of people have also moved out of the area for the deployment.

    We are lucky we have volunteers for key callers.

    We did have a 1st Sergeant come on and his wife is great–but she will probably begin a full-time school program in August.

    This has actually been a problem throughout our Battalion. One of the FRG leaders was taking care of the Battalion stuff until they pulled in a random Major’s wife to help us. Another two Batteries have been through about four different FRG leaders each. One right now has no leader.
