Daughter is getting ready to deploy, I feel so nervous about her leaving

My daughter is home after her 2 week drill A.T. she home for now but has to go to the mob station later. Any idea how long she might be here at home ? She go to Afghanistan in October, but I am hoping they train her longer than 2 weeks but at least before October. I am nervous about her leaving.

  • Not sure how Reserves work, because my son was full time both times he was deployed. I'm imagining she'll have to have more training before leaving. I wish I could help you more but Reserves are different.
