What I would have never considered years prior is now becoming my destiny, which I am very anxious to embrace. My wife and I are both nervous--this is the longest separation we will have experienced to date and are not looking forward to this part. Nevertheless we cannot wait to begin, and to allow it to change us for the better.
If there is anyone out there on the interwebs who is contemplating a military career or term, I can think of a great many benefits that make the decision easier. Has it been easy contemplating a career, or term in the military as a Linguist? I cannot say it has been easy, much has gone wrong, and after several months of unemployment you can begin to doubt even your most hardened of convictions and faith in God. It began nearly 15 months ago and is finally coming to fruition...
Lately I have spoken with numerous friends and couples like us, coming from Korea, bi-racial and everything, considering similar paths and am very surprised to hear that I'm not alone.
I would love to hear stories from bi-racial couples, or those who have dealt with parents who disagreed with your choice in a spouse, and struggles that have gone into making a decision leading to a military career. What made you do it, and what made you stick with it?
