FORT DRUM, N.Y. -- Balancing work and personal responsibilities is a challenge for many families, but dual-military Families face a different set of challenges when dealing with long duty days, deployments and other separations.
One Fort Drum dual-military couple -- Warrant Officer Julia Armstrong and Sgt. 1st Class Everett Armstrong -- has endured almost 35 years of combined military service, all while raising a Family, balancing work schedules and keeping open lines of communication.
Julia Armstrong, who serves as an adjutant general technician for 2nd Brigade Combat Team "Commandos," works down the hall from her husband, who is the brigade's dining facility noncommissioned officer in charge. While working in the same building together has its benefits, it hasn't always been easy for the Fort Drum Family.
Everett Armstrong, who grew up in Houston, has served in the Army for 20 years. As a child, he never thought the military was the right choice for him.
