75. Army Spouse Life & Spending 8 out of 12 months apart

In this week's podcast episode I talk to Zoe about the first few years of being an Army spouse and the ups and downs of spending 8 out of the last 12 months apart from her military husband.



Zoe and I also talk about;

  • Why keeping busy was key while her Husband was away doing his initial training
  • Her first posting experience only a few hours from home
  • Being flexible with her work options & open to posting around Australia
  • Finding out about support & DCO years into her spouse journey
  • A deployment, bushfire assist & COVID tasking all in 12 months
  • The toll frequent separations have had on her, her husband and their son
  • Why the unpredictable nature of defence life has meant she has been unable to return to work
  • Her husbands transition home after being gone 8 out of 12 months
  • The struggle of living together again and her surprise at how hard that can be
  • Her positive outlook on posting, work-life and future separations
