B ecause of MONAT, I was able to travel to Europe to meet up with my husband during a port visit while he is deployed with the U.S. Navy. Without MONAT, there’s no way our trip could have happened!
During this current deployment, not only was I able to see my kids off on the bus in the morning and be there when they came home in the afternoon, I was also able to volunteer as Room Mom for my 3rd grader’s class for the year, and as a Center Helper for my kindergartner’s class once a week.
It is not a stretch to say those things would not have been possible without MONAT, as I would have been working 40+ hours a week in my former career as a licensed Insurance Adjuster.
My husband’s job is about our freedom as a country. Mine is about freedom, too, just on a different scale—the freedom to live my life, be there for my kids when they need me, and having the means to meet up with my husband in Europe!
