This is tangential to what you are talking about, but I feel like I was a shitty father because I stayed in the military.

After I got divorced and my ex moved away and I eventually went overseas, I hardly ever got to see my kids.

In retrospect, I should have got out of the Air Force and moved near my kids.

Being in the military isn't conducive to raising children, especially for dual military parents, or single parents.

If you are a divorced parent without custody and the ex moves away, good luck remaining close to them with summer and holiday visits.
