DH is switching MOS's. He just had a counseling session on Sunday and DH said they make it sound like he will be in the new unit in 2 months. He's changing from 88M (Dispatch/Driver) to 35P. I'm a little nervous with the amount of time they say it takes to learn a new language and that he would wait all these years to do it while we have a little girl at home. He could have done it anytime before her.

But I think since having her he has realized he wants a better civilian job when he is done with military and that is why he is switching. So we have an impending deployment (possibly) or for sure a promotion (needs to go to a school/training for that too) and training for a new MOS....END RANT.

Have you been through a MOS change? (just saw Kimber talk about this and now I'm curious who else?)

It is amazing what family will do to change a man. DH was on the Public Affairs Specialist list and was happy to wait three+ years as an E3 to get to his school, but after marrying me he jumped ship to Yeoman which only had a six month wait (which in the long run he actually loves, after having a PA hang out at his current unit and finding out exactly what their day to day was like).

So no advice here, but I wish you the best of luck!

Dh is currently an 89B ammo specialist.he has considered 89D EOD over and over since he started talking about joining, he keeps going back to it. We've discussed and discussed and finally decided he's going to go for it, or at least try. I'm not thrilled with how dangerous it is but it's what he wants to do and I feel like he'll always regret it if he doesn't try.
He's going to talk to the career counselor people when he gets back in Sept. He possibly close to the age limit but We're pretty sure with how high needs the mos is and how high his asvab scores are it shouldn't be an issue. So we'll see come sept.

Best of luck to you guys!

Thanks to Bokkechick for my siggy.

Thanks for the support. I was feeling a little overwhelmed with the change but when the time comes I know I'll get by while he is away.
Glad I came back to JM
