Wife wants out of ait
I was wondering how my wife and mother of 3 can get seperated or discharged from the Army. She is in AIT right now and wants to come back to us dearly. I want the same also. We have 3 children under the ages of 4. I worked everyday of my life and then became a mother and father all in one night. I myself am having the worst time dealing with raising the kids by myself. She has cried for 3 months straight now and even went to her commander and asked for a hardship and dependency chapter but they wouldn't let her out. We were both told to go to counseling, which starts monday. She wants out any way possible and she has even talked about going awol. The commander wouldn't help us any. The problems here at home are overwhelming and just too difficult to deal with. She is TOTALLY miserable and so is her family. The pay sucks and the time away from her children isn't worth it. Do you have any suggestions for us? She doesn't want to be recycled into another platoon or do any jail time, but does want out VERY bad. Life has totally went to hell at home because of her joining the Army. I don't understand how a commander can tell a young girl with 3 kids that the best place for her, is in there. Any suggestions would be appreciated dearly.
