Military Significant Others and Spouse Support - MilitarySOS.com

  1. 1) Keep fighting. Go as far up the chain of command as necessary. It's their job to help him, not just kick him out.
    2) Look into civilian counseling. See who Tricare will pay for that is not affiliated with the military.
    3) As it sounds like you are trying to work things out with him, be careful but loving. He needs support while he learns how to handle his anger in a different fashion.

    *hugs* If you ever want to PM me, I will gladly listen.
  2. I am having a very difficult time and would love some insight from anyone who is willing to give it. My husband & I have been together for several years, however, only married for the past 6 months. We are now at Ft. Hood, TX. Last week, he punched me in the face & the police were called. He was arrested & a PPO was made against him. This is the second time that the police have been called & his unit has known about this problem from the beginning. Let me say this, while my husband & I both have strong tempers, it has never escalated to this point.
    Today, and for the 2nd time, my husband went to the hospital for help & was sent back to his unit, he tried to get help, only to be ignored, again. I beleive that they are not helping him with counseling, etc. in an effort to chapter him out rather than deal with the issue. My question is, how do we deal with this? Something is wrong & the Army won't help. I am being helped, as the victim, but I don't feel this situation is being treated in a fair way. I realize that this is a tough subject but...Does anyone have any advice?

How I Met My Military Significant Other:
Several years ago my husband and a buddy of his performed music together at a local pub in our hometown. I was there to see their first performance which truthfully, was just awful, but they covered all my favorite songs and I thought that the guitarist was hot! The more they played the better they got and eventually the guitarist married his biggest fan.
About Me:
I'm 32 years old and grew up outside Detroit, Michigan. I earned a Bachelor's degree in English and worked as an elementary art teacher until the suffering economy claimed my job last summer. I am looking forward to earning my Master's degree over the next couple of years while my husband completes his service in the Army. While we have not yet started our own family, I absolutely love children and everything about watching and helping them grow and learn. Being a teacher brings me so much joy and I miss spending my days surrounded by students in the classroom greatly.
About Us:
I married my best friend and the love of my life last December while he was home on Christmas exodus. My husband is realizing a life-long dream and I support him completely, although I admit, this experience so far has been nothing like we thought, thankfully, the hardship has only made our relationship stronger. We are a pretty typical couple, our favorite things to do together are home-cooked meals (my hubby is a darn good cook!) playing board games (scrabble is our favorite,) and we share a slight obsession with crime shows.
Interests & Hobbies:
Literature, live music, crossword puzzles, and karaoke.
Dream Sheet:
When this trip ends, we're looking to have had a little adventure, alot of education, great experiences, & new friendships. Anything more is a blessing.
Music:
Anything country, also Jason Mraz, Bare-naked Ladies, Ray Lamontagne, and Kid Rock are a few current faves.
Television:
DWTS, The Bachelor, CSI:Miami, Criminal Minds, Cold Case, W/O a Trace, Numb3rs, 48 Hrs Mystery.
Movies:
The Notebook, My Life Without Me, Spotless Mind of the Eternal Sunshine, Gardenstate, etc.
Reading:
Anything by Nicholas Sparks.
Occupation:
Teacher

Things are getting better. Finally, some money came in and he graduates in a couple of days. When he gets to his duty station things will get better, at least, that's what we are told. Although we have been told 25 different answers to all our questions in the past two weeks.
I'm traveling 10hrs tomarrow to basically kiss my husband & hug him & hope for the best. He can't even get a pass to allow me to take him out for dinner before he hops another plane. It will get better than

My husband hasn't gotten paid since January! He is still in AIT & can't seem to get an appt. to save our lives, literally. He's still listed as "single" on AKO but I am listed on his Dears. Why isn't this fixed! No pay, no BAH, no anything. In the mean time we are surviving on my waitress pay! I send him money (cash) & it takes forever to get to him! Everything is sinking and we can't get any answers! I've given up our apartment, our car payment is 3 months behind, our car insurance
