I tried doing a search and didn't find anything. If there is, please merge this! And I hope this is the right place for this. Military spouses are welcome, since I assume that even having a husband/wife in the military can affect this hobby to an extent. I was wondering how many other collectors out there were in the military also, and i thought it would be nice to have a place where we could discuss some of the difficulties or issues that being in the military has brought to your hobby. Or maybe even fun stories of your experiences! So what branch/service are you in? How long have you been in? Have you gone on any deployments, and if so, what did you do with your dolls? If you live in the baracks, have you had any odd situations happen during room inspections or problems with roommates? What precautions do you take with your dolls when you have to move to another base? for example, do you just let the movers take everything but your dolls and just physically take your dolls with you in your car or do you ship them? How many dolls do you have? Feel free to throw in any other dollie tidbits! I'm currently in the US Navy and have been in for over four years. I'm not in a deploying billet right now, so I've been on here my job. I'm not married so I don't have a spouse (I'm 22, almost 23...so young... lol) to leave behind, but I am worried down the line for when I'm up for orders for a short tour (a year or so overseas) and even though it'll be a PCS move (basically living overseas rather than just a deployment) I'm not sure if I'd feel comfortable having my dolls included in the move, but I'd like to have one or two with me. Anyway, I started this hobby about three years ago when I still lived in the barracks and luckily, my roommate was very open-minded. I have several dolls, but I live off base and have room for them. When I lived in the barracks, I only owned 2 MSDS and an SD because I have very VERY limited space. I've already moved several times. Luckily for my first PCS move, I didn't have many dolls. I packed them up very very well and made sure the packers knew that they were fragile. I've moved twice here, but it was just from house to apartment, etc, so it was a little easier to deal with. I just packed all my doll stuff in a huge tupperware container. If I get PCS'd again, I'm going to drive them physically to my parent's house. I have way too many dolls to risk those movers transporting them, plus the fact that a few of them are either limited or have one-off mods that cannot be replaced easily or at all. So please share your experiences. I know the experiences will probably change up depending on branch, etc.
