Currently my SO is in the Army National Guard. He is away at BCT for the next month or so still... but he is stressing me out! I am a total type A personality and a planner and when I plan, I follow my plan... anyway SO has mentioned to me that he wants to either go Active Duty Army, Active Duty Air Force or Air National Guard, possibly as an MP (he is currently infantry). I know there's a process and you cant just change whenever you want and have to be released from your current contract.

I know this is a loaded question, but can y'all give me the pros and cons of each branch - from your perspective as being a spouse is. Deployment rates, PCSing average, benefits, thoughts on the branch itself, etc.

I've been doing a lot of research and have found quite a bit of information regarding these, but I would like first hand, personal experiences.

Thanks so much!!!
