I need answers from any wife/SM who can answer this question for me
What were some must haves to make sure that everything is okay for when you or your spouse deployed? Things that were needed to make sure the deployment went as smoothly as possible. Things like dependant ID cards, POAs and things of that nature.
What were somethings that you didn't have that you wish you would have had or known about so that deployment(s) were easier for you and your SO.
I do not mean things like Skype and care packages. I am looking for answer like "I wish we would have known how important having a specific POA for our car was".
Thanks in advance, everyone.
***EDIT: this information isn't for me. It's for me to pass down to my soldiers. This is their first deployment. Just want to make sure that they have everything taken care of prior to us leaving***
