    Recruiting Question

    Advertisements
    OK dh said that when he has to go check in with the main headquarters in Minneapolois( ya i know i spelt that wrong) any way they suggested to dh that he brings me along with him.

    Why is that?? Just curious if any of you went with your dh when they had to check in.

    TIA

    It's common. I was asked to go to. Recruiting is hard duty and they want to meet the spouse, answer any questions, and offer support.

    I can see them asking that...........we were once in the Iowa area for recruiting, when the NRD was at Omaha. It has now since been rezoned and the NRD has moved. Even when the NRD was in Omaha........we were all the way in Iowa on the border of Iowa and ILL., very long drive.
    Point I'm trying to make is.......they probably want to explain what the next 2 to 3 years is going to be like. Each NRD runs differently and takes care of the personal and families differently. It can be really hard on the family, recruiting duty, that is......sometimes it will feel like he is gone more than when he was on sea duty.

    Is there a MEPS close by where you guys are going to be working out of?
