    Can you get stationed in another country if you have 3 dependents (or more)?

    I know of people over here with 3 plus. They have 4 bedrooms on this base.





    Have you ever thought about what protects our hearts? / Just a cage of rib bones and other various parts /
    So it's fairly simple to cut right through the mess / And stop the muscle that makes us confess / And we are so fragile /
    And our cracking bones make noise / And we are just breakable, breakable, breakable girls and boys.

    I ask b/c I had heard if you have more than 1 kid (so more than 2 dependents), it's a lot harder to go...but that's good to know that it's not.

    It depends on things like rank, time in service stuff like that. If you are say an E-1 with a wife and 3 kids they probably would make those unaccompanied. But say an E-5 or above with the same family size would probably get sent. It does depend on what time of year you move, budget stuff too.


    I will miss you SOS...
    Please be wary of what you post remember OPSEC is not just another acronym.

    I've heard it's possible but a little harder.
