This week’s installment of the Military Monday link-up is all about the FRG. Cat from 5 Nuts in a Nutshell, posted a Q and A session she had with her FRG leader. I thought it was very informative and interesting.
Personally, I don’t have much to say about FRGs. I haven’t had good experiences. But I haven’t had bad experiences either. So this post should be rather short.
When D left for basic training, I really wished that I was involved with an FRG. I longed for the interaction with other military wives. I needed the support of others who understood what it was like. But I just didn’t know where to start looking for one.
When D got assigned to his unit in Utah after returning from AIT, I was excited to be able to be a part of an FRG. Unfortunately, his unit’s FRG was not that active. There was an FRG leader but the group never had meetings or activities. And I just wasn’t in a position to start one.
Then we moved to Illinois. Again I was excited to be able to be a part of an FRG. Unfortunately, as far as I know, the FRG here is not active either. One day, I hope that it becomes active because I would love to be a part of it!
So there you have it… my lack of experience with the FRG. But I do not have any negative opinions about it. One day, I would love to be a part of an FRG. I would even love to be a volunteer. But, at this point in my life, it’s just not feasible.
Do you have experience with your FRG? Write about it and then head over to 5 Nuts in a Nutshell to link-up!
