How may my Family and I get involved spiritually while at our IET assignment?

Despite the many challenges of an IET assignment, Families may still continue to practice their faith. Do not allow long weekend hours or being tired from a long week hinder your spiritual growth. Work to preserve your normal worship routine. If your cadre spouse has to work on Sunday or any other day of your religious event, consider attending service on post where the unit goes. Most services are open to cadre Families, and IET tends to worship on Sunday regardless of religion. You can attend together depending on the cycle time.

Your cadre spouse may be able to rotate off for a few hours to attend a service or go to an evening service if the morning is unavailable. There will be days that you cannot worship together. Take your children and go with them. Forfeiting your religious and spiritual growth will likely lead to dissatisfaction and discontent. Be creative in how you maintain spiritual development. If not careful, two or more years may pass by in a spiritual void. Spiritual involvement can only compliment the IET experience.
