I do not know if there are any members who share your situation, but we have hundreds (probably thousands ) of years of military experience available to you here, and I am sure that you will be able to find the answers to your questions.

Good luck, and welcome to the forum.

Welcome to the forums Chicka. I think that joining that military is possible for you but take a look at the pay rates at http://www.dfas.mil/money/milpay/pay/
The question I might ask myself is "How am I going to take care of the babies?" You will have many occaissions when you'll have to leave those children at home for long, long periods of time. You need a support network of family etc. to help you when you have to do your job. I won't presume to make your decision for you but make sure you plan carefully, make sure you have all your ducks in a row before you commit to a very demanding occupation that doesn't pay a whole lot (starting at $1104.00 per month base pay for an E-1) Good luck with your decision whatever it is.

Well, my dads a single parent in the army. I don't how its like on American army bases, but here at the Garrison they have single parent houses for all the single parents in the army, they're alright. It will be hard on your kids when they're young. When my dad would be deployed or at training, or whatever, my brother and I would live with my grandparents. It's fine now that we're older but it was hard on us when we were young. Like Dtop said, make sure you have a good support system.
