Hello there, just wanted to post something in here to kick this one off. I am a single father of one and have been in the Navy for 13 years. I know there are lots of single parents in the military, let's hear from you.

: CLEAR :

ZAPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPP!!!!

Did that work?

Not in the military here but, my ex was when we married. How ever do you do it and be a single parent to a two year old? It is hard enough being a civilian, while being a single parent.

Just wanted to say hello. No, I am not in the military either but have been told I run my township like it.
Most of my family is or has been military, navy or airforce. Thanks for being there we appreciate it.

It is a challenge but I had over 10 years in before I became a single parent. I just try and make as much time for my son as possible and don't let the military run my life, my son does that already.

Totally amazing how a little one can change your entire outlook on life and your heart. They melt me on a regular basis.

My soon to be ex husband is in the army. I was an army wife for 3 years. Other than being a parent it's the toughest job.

I've been a single mom in the AF for about 5 years. It's easier if you have a good support system. I had that for about 3 years until I had to PCS -- having to start over & make friends you trust with your children is tough.
