What are your experiences, is a good idea to have pets while in service? I wanna get a pet, however I'll be going TDY a lot this next year. I don't think i can bring my pets on TDY, can I? I'm single, so i can't leave it behind with a wife or GF. what about pet health? Is the vet service free on a base? Any advise would be great here, when i first get to my base i'll be all alone in a 2 bedroom house, i figured a pet would help the emptiness.
