Hello MR and Mrs Cintron,
I got out 2007 and went back to my hometown in PA. I was unemployed for a year. I chose not to be in the workforce after two years back to back deployment in Iraq.Needless to say..I was just tired. Adjustment? YES big adjustment. It's gonna take awhile. It took me two years before it sink in. Job in Philippines..if you would settle for 5 to 7 dollars a DAY otherwise just reap the benefits of being just out of the army and collect. Take a break for a year, gather your thoughts,plan and be ready to be a civilian again.Oh..utility bills come rolling in when you are out of the barracks. bummer!
True,i agree with you...he was deployed in Iraq & he just came home from Afghanistan last October,theres a lot happened in Afghanistan that made him not want to extend more years in the army.as a wife,im relieved & all those worrying & sleepless night will be over.but yeah,i know he will have a hard time adjusting to civilian life but im here to support & help him all the way.he wasnt living in the barracks,he have a house off post so im pretty sure he's used to utility bills that comes every month.He wants to find a job here in the philippines,he dont wanna be away from us anymore,its wearing him down.im working as a teacher,ill be here to help support the bills...i may not make a lot but it does help..right now,he's really anxious to just be out & come home.he's actually counting down....9 more days,yay!
