Hello, I'm just looking for some tips or advice about family situations. I leave for bootcamp in March, and my husband is active duty in the Marines until July. We already know there is a good chance we will be separated until he gets out. But I'm nervous about our 1 year old son. I know there are a number of places I could get sent after graduating bootcamp, but would you suggest me trying to move my son up with me, or leave him until my husband can come? I've heard a little about a 2 on 2 off sliding schedule but am not sure how that works. And if I get put on a ship, (again I know they are all different) but do they stay out for a long time, or return every night.
My son will be in daycare Mon-Fri from 630am to 5pm for sure with my husbands schedule.
I just want to make the best decision for him but my biggest fear is that he will forget who I am.
Any advise or just personal experience is greatly appreciated!
