Dh Will Deploy This Summer

I was expecting it, because he is the only one of his rank in his field not to have deployed. But still, I am already feeling lonely. We will tell our family, but we will not tell the kids until we get a lot closer.

I was feeling a touch of anxiety thinking about my DH working out of state for 3 weeks or so.
Then I thought about military families and realized my situation doesn't even compare.
I'll certainly be thinking about you.

My Dh pinned on O-5 this last oct and put us back in the running for another deployment. I just sit back and wait to see if and when it will happen. It can't right now with his current job, but he isn't excempt.
We are all here for you with whatever you need. REMEMBER TO ALWAYS ASK FOR HELP AND TO TAKE THE HELP THAT IS OFFERED. I learned that lesson the hard way for some reason.
Take care and keep us posted. You are my in thoughts as you gear up for this transition.
Oh and check out the book - The Man Who Walked Between Two Towers by Mordecai Gerstein. My DS and I read this book and it actually brought up a conversation about 9-11. It helped him understand a little better why daddy was gone and doing what he was doing.
Wrap your arms and around yourself and squeeze - Big hugs from all of us here!!!
Bloom where you are planted !!

Altho I never deployed, I worked lots of deployment isses as an IG, and DH deployed more times than I can count between SF and the 82d (all before I met him, I hasten to add).
So we can at least empathize with whatever comes up.
Just remember you're not alone, and keep us posted
