I completely understand. We are thinking my husband will get out after this assignment. The two biggest fears we have are will he be able to find a job and what if getting out is a big mistake. We are just going to make our faith to be bigger than our fear and see what happens between now and then.

I hear ya. It’s a tough decision to make, especially when it usually involves changing everything, including what state (and sometimes country) you live in!
Paul seems to have the longest sign up time anyone has ever heard of; our seperation date will make it a month shy of 7 years for his inital sign up. Although he doesn’t have anything lined up, all we can do at this point is hope that the skills he’s earned while in the miltary will carry over to finding a good job afterwards.
I know I have been silent for a long time. I don’t know why! I feel like I’m getting back into the swing of things. I’m going to try and not make this too long!
Your post really spoke to me. My oldest son has Asperger ‘s Syndrome(diagnosed at age 6). We found out that he was on the autistic spectrum when he was three years old. We were living in Germany at the time. We’d been dealing with his issues for a year and a half before the spectrum diagnosis and had people come to us for services. It worked really great for us! Leif is now nearly 14 years old. We have moved four times since then. It has been our experience that the Army really does take our EFMP status into consideration. For example, before we moved to Georgia they were going to make a last minute switch and send us to Knox. As soon as my husband voiced his concerns and they saw Leif’s status, they allowed us to continue on to GA. It has NOT been easy. The move from KS(we had been there 6.5 yrs) to GA was a terribly difficult transition for him. I had a behavioral therapist come to the home and within a year we made great progress. Getting Leif what he has needed has never been difficult for us. Our transition to CO has been awesome. I realize our situations are a bit different and I’m not trying to make blanket statements. I just want to encourage you! Yes, there are challenges for sure! Sometimes I have had to be forceful and be a loud voice for my son, but I think you would have to do that anywhere. I actually think that having to transition and be flexible with this life has really helped Leif. We do our best to keep him in the loop! My husband is indefinite now. It would be really great if this was our last duty station:) I wouldn’t complain about that. You are great parents and will do what is best for your family! I know that, either way, your children will get the best of you!
I’m so sorry. I just re-read my comment. By “best of you”, I hope you know I meant the best of who you are and what you have to give them:)
