Our Jobs….DFAS


Well we started our new jobs at DFAS.  We both work in the same department.  We are both going to be traveling to Rock Island, IL throughout the year.  My DH gets to travel first to Rock Island and the beginning of the year for 7 weeks.  He will get to come home some weekends.  We will only have to travel for long periods of time the first year, because Rock Island is closing.   We both like the jobs.  We work great hours and our son gets to ride into work with us because the have a daycare onsite.  Well, I will keep everyone posted on how we like it once my DH starts traveling.
