Like many military spouses, I have struggled with maintaining a career while married to the military due to frequent permanent change of station moves. Throughout my family’s military journey, I have been fortunate to find positions at each duty station. I have worked in higher education, government relations, program management, and currently for an IT company that offers telework opportunities for their employees. After seven years of marriage, this adds up to five different positions and four duty stations.
Benjamin Franklin nailed it when he said, "Fatigue is the best pillow." True story, Benny. There's nothing like pushing your body so far past exhaustion that you'd willingly, even longingly, take a nap on a concrete slab.
