  • No, not ye!t. He got home the day after Easter. We have until May or so. Just stay busy!

  • Just got home in April! No more deployments for us.

  • Deployment sucks. My husband and I were both in the Navy. We were deployed together on the same ship (obviously weren't married then). His first deployment without me was terrible. I was pregnant and he missed half of it because he was gone. His second deployed sucked, too, because my daughter was barely six months old when he deployed.

    Things that helped us out were daily emails and pictures. If you have a webcam, recording daily videos from home work really well. If he enjoys hearing you sing or play an instrument, record that on your webcam and send it to him. Care packages helped out, too. Depending on where he's deployed, will determine what all you can send to him.

    I hope he comes home soon. Deployments are NEVER easy.
