Ugh I was just ordered us to private out social media before deployment. Since when they started doing this? I also thought you get more than 2 weeks at home after your 2 weeks pre deployment training part one before the 45 day training?Answer Question

For the social media, they do that because of OPSEC, which protects the soldier and his unit. You are not guaranteed any certain amount of time home before a deployment. They can also change the deployment date a a moment's notice.

Again, that can change at any time. There were two instances where this happened to my husband. He was on call to report at a moment's notice to Liberia. He got called in and was boarding the plane when the orders got cancelled. For his first tour to Iraq, he wasn't suppose to leave until the end of February. He got a call on February 8th that they were leaving the next day and to report in 5 hours.

Next question overall
If a puppy came running up to you with it's tail wagging, would you flip out?
