I often hear military spouses express a sense of hopelessness when it comes to reaching personal educational and career goals due to the transient military lifestyle. The obstacles to those goals seem overwhelming or even insurmountable.
My husband and I got married while I was in college. I had to decide whether to stay at Eastern Kentucky University (EKU) to finish my senior year or move to Fort Bragg, North Carolina, with him. As a newlywed, I couldn’t imagine us living apart. I reluctantly left my beloved EKU after three full years of study and found a new home at Fayetteville State University.
