My wife is currently pregnant with my second child and my first in the EFMP program. Drill is just not feasible for me and my family right now. Anyone have any ideas?

This is not looking good for you. Once Drill Sergeant Branch has you, you are theirs. They may be able to a deferment as mentioned earlier. But the quickest way to get it over with is to do your time. Your not the only Drill Sergeant candidate that has a pregnant spouse and/or small children who are EFMP. I also had 2 EFMP children and 1 3month old baby when i graduated Drill Sergeant school. It is what it is. You can do it. And at the end of it you will have served in one of the most gratifying jobs you can do for your country. I wish you and your family luck, you have to do what you feel is best for you and your family.

Back during my time it was possible to get a defermen, but only on extreme cases. Honestly I don’t know when there’s a good time to go to Drill Sgt School. When I went I had 3 daughters the oldest was 6. Unless you are not career minded you probably need to suck it up and get it over.
