Feb. 2, 2008 at 10:56 PM My husband is right now on his way back from a year long tour in Iraq.  It's really hard, and it's definitely no fun, but you can do it.  I'm here if you want or need to talk.

Feb. 3, 2008 at 4:59 PM I am so sorry. I don't have any advice bc I don't know if I would be able to handle that. I sometimes wonder how army wives do it all alone. hopefully you can connect with some moms on here that have been through the same things. Good luck.

There is a book called "half my heart is in iraq" it is available at Target.com. It is a book to help through deployment. It gets a little easier when they actually call, send pictures and things. Maybe send a digital camera so he can record video, and take pics? Other then that there isn't much else to do besides keep in contact with friends and family. My husband is also in Iraq.
