…they pull me back in.
No, DH has not been called back up from IRR (Individual Ready Reserve). We are still leaving active duty.
However, DH has decided that, in addition to his work as an Assistant District Attorney, he will join the New York National Guard for a few reasons.
In no particular order:
- He wants to continue serving his nation.
- They will stabilize him for two years and cut his IRR commitment in half
- He likes the military
So…now I will find myself in an entirely different sort of military spouse role. Any advice from current or former guard spouses?
