Re: Military Father
You will have to have a family care plan in place making certain that your child will be cared for in the event of your deployment. Go up your chain. Your NCOIC should be able to direct you. If not, see your JAG. Your child is entitled to military benefits such as medical care (presuming you are active duty). If you are not going to marry the mother, make certain your child is listed as your dependent and has an ID card so that the mother can also get commissary and PX privileges if you are away. Bear in mind, if she is not your wife, she will not be entitled to military medical. The birth will have to take place in a civilian hospital and, once the baby is born, the baby only will qualify for military medical care. Call if you need anything. Congratulations, by the way.
