I am an Air Force wife. Thankfully my husband is currently in a job where he does not deploy frequently. He has been on a 5 month deployment to Afghanistan, and he has been on countless training classes where he will be gone from 1-3 weeks at a time usually. Sometimes a little longer. Just this past spring he had 2 tdy's back to back and was gone all of May and half of April. He's leaving in a few days to go to a class in Tennessee, and he MIGHT be back Thanksgiving night...if not then the next day. With him being gone so frequently for the training classes and such, it just becomes normal life for it to just be me and the kids. When he's here, great, when he's gone, we deal with it and go on with our lives.
