activated, can my spouse come?

  1. I would like to join the Army Reserve Nurse Corps in the future.
    If I were activated domestically, could my spouse come too?

    For example I saw this article about an Army Reserve medical unit from Fargo, ND that was activated for a year long deployment to Fort Hood, TX.

    The very first thing you learn in the military is that the military is the first thing! Please don't go into the military if you think you are not going to be separated.

    Please talk to others in your situation.

    I don't think the terminology is deployed, it might be mobilized, then again I'm not familiar with the Reserve system too much. And your spouse can of course go with you, but the question is will the Army pay for it and give her benefits, this is called "command sponsored." Not entirely sure about that, I guess it depends on your mission and the units funds.
