I was stationed at Ft. Gordon for a few years and I’m still in the Augusta area.  What Fort are you going to?

I’m here!!! My Fiance is stationed at Ft. Stewart in Savannah and has been for 3 years BUUUUUT we just found out he will be moving and reporting to Ft. Still in Lawton, OK on May 9th. We have absolutely LOVED Savannah and will really miss it ๐Ÿ™ Like you, we’re getting ready for a big move!

Breathe, you’re going to be JUST FINE!! You can do this!

Expect a lot of hoops that he has to jump through once he reports…in- processing and such, getting to his new unit, etc. Is he an officer or enlisted? The move itself will be the hardest part, what with packing and driving, and then unpacking and settling in. The military does pay for that, so that’s really nice!

I advise you to join any and every family and support group so you can get involved and meet other wives and familes. They will be your new network and family and you’ll really benefit more if you get involved. The FRG is the Family Readiness Group and they relay any info about things that are going on and once he deploys in the future, they will be your support group and lifeline.

Learn what you can about what he’s doing but I promise, you’ll still be learning and figuring things out along the way. It’s been 3 years and I’m still catching on to things ๐Ÿ˜‰ The ranks and acronyms and the order of groupings still confuse me and I’m always asking questions. Just ask questions and familiarize yourself with at least what he does.

The move is scary because it’s a new place and environment but it’s also fun, like an adventure for the 2 of you. Embracing it is the only way you’ll make it and just enjoy it. It’s scary and at times hard but it can be fun, too and honestly, it’s really not a bad lifestyle. We’re really happy for the most part. You’re gonna be fine and the great thing is, the military is one big family. Don’t forget that!

Please please please PM if you need to talk or have any questions. It’s a  big adjustment, no matter how long you’ve been in, and it’s always good to have someone you can relate to. Just stay positive and remember, you and your hubby are in this together.
