  • It is hard but it pays the bills and takes care of our family. You just cope with things by taking them one day at a time and making the best of whatever situation you are in. Staying busy is also very important when the hubby is gone for a long time.

  • Be sure to have a good support group, and be prepared to be away from him a lot. Also a lot of re-locating involved. Become educated on the resources available to you, get involved in the FRG. And of course be educated on all of his information, his rank/paygrade, MOS, SSN, birthday, unit number etc. Congratulations!

  • It's hard, especially long seperations (we're on deployment #3) but having good support system is crucial. You'll learn as you go and make sure to utilize the resources available to you to make it easier. You'll quickly realize how strong you are because sometimes being strong is the only choice you have. :) Good luck and congratulations! And welcome to the military life!
