My Husband's Getting Deployed…Now What?

4285 days ago.

I don’t know how many times in the last couple of weeks I have Googled that question.  And I don’t know exactly what answers I’m looking for.  This weekend he will find out his training dates and ‘ship out’ date. Destination: Afghanistan.  All I’ve been trying to do is not think about it too much and be as supportive as possible.

I know that I have an awesome support system at home.  But I still feel lost.

From those of you that have experienced deployment, I’m reaching out to you.  I’m asking for your advice, your knowledge, your experiences.

Where do I start? Where do I go from here?  What can I expect?  What shouldn’t I expect?

I do just want to say that I am so proud of my husband.  And I know how important it is to him to be a good soldier.  He is an amazing father.  He is my world.  I am very blessed to have him in my life.  And no amount of miles or minutes will change that.
