  • Drill Sergeant spouses train for role

    Feb 12, 2009

    Every quarter Army Family Team Building helps drill sergeant spouses adjust to the lifestyle change with its Drill Sergeant Spouses Training. Marriage to a drill sergeant can easily be compared to marriage to a deployed Soldier because drill sergeants spend a great deal of time away from home, said Angela Crosland, AFTB program manager. Reversed priorities can add more weight for his or her spouse to carry. "They may be a mile away from you, but they can't help you with the kids or they can't take the kids or do this or do that around the house because they're out in the (training) cycle," she said. The training includes an introduction to Army life, community involvement, stress management, family readiness, and ended with an open dialogue with a drill sergeant. Most of the presentations refreshed the veteran Army spouses on military life, but since they are new drill sergeant spouses the course emphasized self-reliance and relationship strengthening.
