My ex has primary custody of my son - we've kept it out of the court as our relationship is good even though we're not together. She's in the Air Force, interested in taking a voluntary 2 year European tour if she can get the assignment in her contract with no hidden strings, the contract being one of those she would sign while transferring from the reserves to active duty. To clarify, she's not interested in switching to active duty without that specific assignment. She's also not interested in going if her son's father can't accompany him - she wants me to be a father as much as I want to be one, for the kid's sake, and I've always wanted to go to Europe anyway, so I don't mind. The problem is that we're not married, nor were we when the child was born, so I would need a military ID to stay on base with them, which I would surely have to do (at least to get on my feet overseas). My first thought was getting a job at my local AF base as a civilian. The only complication is that I don't know how to go about this, or if I could find a decent job. By decent, I mean, not shitty pay, and not janitorial work. If possible, I'm proficient and interested in technical and/or writing fields. Anybody know how realistic or doable this plan sounds?
