Have you looked into what you would want to do in the military? It isn't an easy life for either the officer or the spouse. Are you looking at any of the services in particular? Different services have different types of jobs and different things that make them unique.

My dh and I were both Army officers. I would do it again and my dh wouldn't. He was active duty while our kids were young. That was tough. Having a spouse who travels a lot while kids are you is a tough job. Being away from family without that support is tough. The military community is fabulous, but every move is an adjustment.

If you are burning out after 4 years it might be time for a change. At 4 years, I finally felt like I knew what I was doing (and then had to change grade levels and start all over again.) Teaching is hard work!
