Single-Parent in Military.

response to the following post...comment up to 100 words or more. single space. no reference etc. Post#1The military is seeing a rise in single parents because of the rise in divorce rates. This is due to an operations tempo that has remained unchanged while the size of the manning continues to decrease. Stress and overwork have led to burnout and has begun causing serious issues at home. This issue of childcare and single parenting are a non-issue. The fact is that the military has provisions in place to enable a support network for military members with children. Family care plans are required for many active duty members, but especially those who are single parents. If a member is called away for deployments, temporary duty etc... the members utilizes their family care plan. This plan mandates powers of attorney and all other documents needed for the designated caregivers to assume the care of the member's children. Many times, this includes grandparents, aunts, uncles and sometimes the ex. Under no circumstances should a member be excused from a deployment due to their children. The military also has policies in place for this, refusing orders mandates that a member separate from the military within one week, it is also called the seven day option. I would hope that a military member would have more honor than to use their children to be excused from their duties, but I have seen it happen before. Oh and if you think that this SNCO is heartless, I have been a single parent while on active duty and still fulfilled all obligations. Post#2:The military has already taken a stand on child care for the single parent during deployment by addressing the matter at the time of enlistment. As an employer, 1) the military has generously provided options and assistance in regards to childcare and 2) require the enlisted to formally document the contingency plan(s) for primary child care in the event of deployment. While resources may be wanting, I think it is inappropriate and ill-advised for a parent (single or otherwise) to expect the military to change the requirements of a position (up to and including deployment) base on their decision to procreate. Should a parent, for whatever reason, decide they cannot be deployed for a considerable length of time, the military should consider reassigning that service member to a position that is not open for deployment (if such a position exist). If such a position does not exist, the service member may need to revisit their decision to enlist. As a parent, I never considered my time, my resources, or my life (nor that of my children) to be more precious than my co-workers or colleague who were child-free. When the enlisted elect to take on the role of parenthood (intentional or incidental), this decision should not be an issue that adversely affects military strategies. Post#3:Regarding the increase in single-parent members in the military, one thing is certain, the welfare of their children becomes a priority. This can have a negative impact on the mission readiness of our armed forces. The need to balance the commitment to both the military and children become an issue. At the recruiting level, single parents with children need to be identified. Once identified, the military prospect must have a definite plan on who the guardian/s of their children will be along with signing a contract agreeing to serve in combat. For single-parent members, either from divorce or other reasons and who are currently serving, must be identified and provide a plan to care for their children in the event of deployment. If the conditions can’t be met by a certain time frame, they must be discharged from the military. I know first-hand that the Army has what is called the “Family Care Plan”. It is an Army policy that identifies and gives conditions that must be met by single-soldiers regarding the care for their kids in their absence. The unit commanders are responsible for ensuring that a plan of action is in place for the care of the single-parent soldier’s children in the event of a deployment. Once identified, they have 30 days from the initial meeting with the commander to provide proof of a family care plan. If they are unable to meet the requirements set forth, they will be discharged from the Army. It sounds unfair, but I see the military as an organization that must have one equal standard for everyone regardless of if they are single, married, or dual-parent. I feel that allowing single-parents to be excused from combat opens doors of unequal treatment between single and dual-parents. As it stands now, dual-parents must deploy, no question asked. They don't get choices on if they want to deploy or not. It is an all-volunteer force and deployment is part of the contract. Every military member should be ready to deploy and endure all of the hardships of deployment or go home.
