My DH and I have been married for 3 years in November. In 2007 when we married, 3 days after we married, he went to Basic. Then to AIT and from there, got his first duty station deployed to Korea. He was there for a year and came for Christmas in 2008. He's been home currently since April of last year, so he's been home for a little over a year. He got news today that he is on the list to deploy by next year to Afghanistan. He's a dental specialist. I could deal with him being in Korea cause I knew he wasn't in an immediate warzone. What do I do to deal with this? I'm so scared for him. I'm terrified of getting that knock on my door. How do I deal with this???Answer Question

Your husband is stationed at Ft. Lewis? That's where my son is and he has the same MOS. He went to Iraq from 11/07-2/09 and he lleaves for Aghanistan this summer. A a mom I wrote a lot of letters and will write a lot of letters. He and his wife (who was in the Army, same MOS, but is no longer in the Army) were both stationg in Iraq at the same time an they had their laptops with them and were online just about every day. Being on a base is a bit safer though, yeah there are moments and I won't go in to them because you don't need the horror stories. Your hubby's MOS is a safer MOS than some so try not to stress too much.
Don't watch the news....at all. Here's a group...it's Moms Of Soldiers but they also have groups for wives/girlfriends and ANYONE with a loved one in the military is welcomed!! http://momsofsoldiers.ning.com/
