you guys have been awesome

Well, it looks like the chances of me actually doing ROTC have gone away. I discovered that I have hypothyroidism, which makes it unlikely that the military will take me back. I mean, I know that "where there's a will, there's a waiver", and that the Army is so understaffed that they would help me get that waiver, but I have to wonder if it's worth it. Chances of getting deployed? About 90%. I have a small child and another on the way that will need their mother, and while I have no doubts that my husband could do a fine job taking care of them I'm not sure that I want to miss all the important moments. As former enlisted, I really do understand that the military is a sacrifice, but I'm not sure it's one that I'm willing to make... We'll see. I can still take the first class or two without any obligation, as long as they're not giving me a scholarship. Right?
