Hi coastie wives!
My husband has gone through MEPs, taken his asvab, and is swearing in on April 26th. Hoping for a career in intelligence. We have talked about him joining the USCG for almost 2 years now and it’s finally happening! We are both very excited, but I am also growing a little scared of the unknown, so I was hoping some of you could give me a little advice and tell me what life has been like for you as a coastie wife, as well as maybe telling me anything you wish you had known back when they first joined.
We have a one year old daughter and we’ve been together 8 years. We also got married (finally) last weekend. I’m worried about how our daughter will adjust to life in the military and how it’ll feel not to have him with us for long periods of time. What do you all do to fill your lives? Is it hard/weird to make new friends? Is there a good support system? Do you live on base? I have a million questions! Also, please know that i am 100% committed to supporting him in his career and this is our joint life goal. No backing out for this girl! 😂
Thanks in advance, ladies! Can’t wait to be a part of the USCG family!
