Do commissioned officers spend a lot of time away from family?
My boyfriend's (yes I am gay) sister is dating someone who is in the Army and their relationship suffers due to the sporadic communication and little to no time together. He and I are already long distance so it's difficult as/is. Adding military to the equation surely would be disastrous. My school offers Army, Air Force, and Navy ROTC programs.
I was wondering, if I was to join and pass one of these programs then become a commissioned officer, how much time would I be away from my family/boyfriend? I would likely go into Navy because I find them to be the "cooler" branch. I can't find much information about this at school so I am asking here from people who may have ROTC experience. Thank you!
