It is possible, but I don't know the details. It depends on several factors but I have known several Air Force Families (In Germany 1980 and in Albuquerque 1999) which have done it...

I was just wondering on how that works.

Someone a few years into the military, with rumors of PCS going on... Then gets married to another military, who which in turn has a child shortly after. Are they staying put or are they still subject to leaving?

They are eligible to apply for assignments under the "join spouse" program.

Rumors don't count...

They are still subject to leaving.

They are military and still subject to the military regulations.

Coolhand68 pretty well answered that and the web page...

Here it is official, from the Air Force:

FROM: Contact Us: Frequently Asked Questions - airforce.com
Do married Air Force members stay together?

There are no guarantees that you will always be stationed at the same base together. The nature of Air Force mission is the reason. However, the Air Force has a specific program called the Join Spouse Program designed to make every possible effort to assign both spouses to the same base. Read more about the Join Spouse program in this PDF document.

For more information on this subject, you can chat with one of our online advisers or click here to contact us and get in touch with your local recruiter.
