This is all new to me. There are no prior military in my family so not much to reference.

My daughter will be leaving for Ft Jackson and beginning Boot Camp in a few days, Jan 6, 2014. . She doesn't talk about it much , but I can't help but think she is a bit apprehensive./ nervous....... I know I would be. She is a bit shy and as a mom I just hurt to think that when she needs a kind voice and a bit of moral support, most  she wont reach out. Besides her leaving, I am just short of a good cry most of the time now. I love her so much and am trying to maintain a strong front for her. She was away at college for 3 years( she is now 22)  , but this is so different.

That's me these days....a total " flake" !

 Hi, my name is Freya and I am from and currently live in Georgia. My husband of 11 years is in the U.S. Army Reserves and is currently deployed in Afghanistan. He has served over 20 years. In my free time, I like to read and volunteer.

Hi! I've just joined Cafemom and am just starting to get into the groups. I'm a stay at home mom (for the time being) and my husband is getting ready to go on orders at the end of the month for a 12 month deployment with the Army National Guard. He's been in the military a total of 18 years and with the Guard since 2001( he was prior Navy). I have two children ages 4 & 3, girl and a boy.Since we've been married, I've been through one similar deployment back in 2010. I'd have to say that was probably the worst time in our lives and marriage (I could write a book on it, but I doubt anyone would believe me). Anyway, I am trying to prepare better for this one. I don't have a lot of free time, but I enjoy reading and watching crime dramas.
