((hugs)) The lead-up is almost worse than the actual deployment I think all military spouses and SOs have those same thoughts/feelings. I know I do with mine. Hang in there! You’ve got a whole lot of support here whenever you need it

The leadup is the worst. We were see-sawing back and forth between when they were leaving, if they were leaving, where they were going. It was just exhausting!
We’re now 6 months in….6 months to go.
You’ve got this! Hang in there and know that I’m always around with a listening ear!

(Big Hugs to you)
My fiance is stationed at Fort Campbell and has been deployed to Afghanistan for about a month now. Since I am in college in California I wasn’t in touch with the FRG and didn’t have any clue what to expect during predeployment and the actual deployment (this is our first deployment). I must say I went through an array of emotions. Proud of my soldier of course, mad because he had to go, sad, mad at civilians because they don’t comprehend the sacrifice, fear when they were attacked last Sunday…and I’m sure the list will only get longer as this deployment continues. Last night I had a little bit of a meltdown in my dorm room. I know that I am strong, but I felt so sick of being strong. I just want him home. However, this is the life we chose, this is the life we live, and we CAN do this.
I will continue to pray for your husband and your family, along with every other soldier serving. And I will continue to pray for you and the rest of the SO’s out there; for your peace and safety. We can do this ladies!
Judith Sanders and I offer our prayers for your family. Also, please contact HeartsApart.org at http://HeartsApart.org and arrange to have your family photographed by a profession for no charge to you so they can give you a set of photos and provide your husband with a set that’s weatherproof & can be folded & put in a pocket to keep you all connected. Let us know if you have trouble, we can help.

Sorry to hear you’re family is going through this. Waiting for a deployment is very difficult! I have been dealing with such a range of emotions but i’m glad to know it’s normal. I really pray a lot!
I feel for you. And your kids. And your husband. Oh for all of you! We are 2 wks into a deployment now and it’s a lot but honestly, nothing compared to the build up. Good luck in the predeployment phase.
Hang in there. I know completely how you feel and I agree with others here the pre-deployment is almost as tough. Enjoy the moment and make the most of the quality time you have. I pray for a safe deployment for you guys again!!!
Thanks for your service!!!
