What is life like as an Army JAG wife?

I am not a JAG spouse (yet), but my boyfriend of 6 years graduated law school last year and is in the process of applying to be a JAG. Knowing next to nothing about military life, I feel sort of uneasy about it, so I'm hoping to gain some insight here, in case he gets accepted. I am concerned because I have no idea what happens to me career-wise (I just got my MBA and work in marketing, and would really like to continue with a career). Also, I am also a city girl, and I don't know anything about army base life. What are the chances of being able to select the base you want to live on? Can you buy a house, or do you get moved too frequently for that to be practical? What are the chances of a JAG getting deployed? For how long are they usually gone? If anyone can help with any of these questions, I'd be very grateful. Thanks in advance!

I don't know anything about Jag. I do know that when the soldier finishes their AIT that the get to choose 3 stateside bases and 3 overseas...My husband and I chose the 3 stateside and the 3 overseas bases where we would like to live the most, and we received orders to South Korea. Korea was not one we selected. Usually you get orders to wherever the Army needs you the most. As for a job, when you are stateside it's easier to work because you get spouse preferation. The Army likes to give the spouses picks over civilians. That is not the case every time or overseas. I wouldn't choose to buy a house honestly, but it's about your preference. The way I look at it you move to often for it to be a wise choice unless you can rent it out to reliable people when you get stationed somewhere else. Most Army bases are like small "cities". Most bases have a commissary (grocery store), a px which sells house hold goods, a mini mall that sells furniture, work out equipment, outdoor furniture, a military clothing store where you can buy your uniforms and ribbons, food courts, bowling alley, gym, gas stations, restaurants, class six (alcohol), movie theater, housing etc...Depending on the size of the base will determine the amount of "stores" they will have on post.I live on a very small post so for certain items i have to go to a larger base in my area. I hope this gives you a little insight on what an Army base would be like.
