I'm heavily considering the military and I was wondering if it was or is possible.
Also, if there are any retired or active military/navy personnel, I would LOVE to hear how it is for you!
I still haven't worked up to talking to a recruiter but I want to be somewhat knowledgeable before I commit.

Well of course it's possible. It's a matter of how much you want it and how much work you're willing to put into it. I know a lot of military families who will "have to get rid of the cat" when they move...it doesn't have to be like that. We moved from the West Coast to the East coast with pets... I'd imagine that you'd have to finance the moves for your animal same as we did, but it would be a little more to consider. Plus you may not always have the option of going where you want...which means that board may end up being more, less...further than you'd want, or right next door. XD And then if you deploy, of course you'd want full board if you don't usually do that. Some things to consider. I'm going to end up being half the country away from my husband for a year or three, but either way, the horse will be moving with us.
