Before you even get to the school in San Antonio... You will be an officer, more than likely a Captain at least. (It takes most officers 4 years to make CPT)
But your basic training won't be like what I went through. A 'gentlemans course' is what I heard someone call it. So that should mean no screaming drill sergeants, even though you will have to do physical training everyday and learn all your officer duties.
I believe it is more an educational course, since you will have classes and stuff. But I don't think it is as strenuous as boot camp. But I'm sure its nothing to just shake a stick at either. I will gather some more info for you from someone who is in it now.
The course is 14 weeks, but I hear it might be longer in the future. You will be able to speak to your husband on the phone..lol
He might be able to see you if he is down there at Ft Benning (at his own expense of course). But I am not sure about that...you might not be able to see him until the very end of the course, if at all.
As long as there isn't a war going on, you should be stationed at a hospital in the U.S., or in Korea or Germany. Also there is a 6 month rotation some have to do in Bosnia. I heard it isn't too bad I know alot of people who went over there.
Maybe you will get even more lucky and be stationed in Japan or Italy. (I dont know if you like to live in other countries though)
But I only know of 2 people who were stationed there.
But yes, you will be a CRNA...mostly likely with 0-4 rank or higher.
You husband will live with you, unless he has a job keeping him somewhere else. A tour in Germany is 2 years if you went by yourself... 3 years if he goes with you.
Korea is 18 months IF you get to take him with you. Families are 'command sponsered' over there. You must apply and see if there is space. Not all the Camps in Korea can accomadate families. You can bring him, but you will have to pay rent off post in KOREA itself, since he will not be able to stay on the base.
I think your pay will be around 90,000+, which is great but it will still be less than if you where a civilian. But the army has a few perks in addition to its downsides.
Anymore questions let me know.....
Hi gotosleep..... hope training is going good still!
