** I do apologize for my lack of military wording and knowledge**
Hello! My husband and I just married on May 2nd, after being together for almost 4 years. He was toying with the idea of joining he Navy last year, but that fell through due to him only having a GED and no college. So....a year later he is thinking about the Army.
One of my main concerns is our pets. We are 20 years old and aren't looking to have children for a few more years.....so our pets are our life.
I am just concerned that my pets won't be allowed to move with us. I will admit that I need to research more on military life, but it is very confusing and overwhelming. I think I just need to have other people tell me in simpler form.
If he joins...can we get off base housing for sure? We would have to find a place that allows our pets. Also...how often would we be moving around? I really don't want to have to move around every year....and I definitely do not want to go over seas. My husband has been talking with a friend who was in the Army and he did forklift operation, so my husband is wanting to also do something like that because he currently works in a warehouse.
We do eventually want to own a house within the next few years, so how possible is this in the military?
Do we get to pick where we want to live, or do they just put us there?
I also should add that we have 1 small 13lbs dog, 2 kitties, 3 small house rabbits, and 9 pet rats (one whom is very old and will not live much longer). All of my pets are neutered, besides the four female rats (because the males are neutered).
Thank you in advance, and I do apologize again for being so clueless.
