A Good Season After Deployment

I have been thinking a lot about last November compared with this one. It was such a sad month for us. My husband deployed Thanksgiving day. He deployed about 365 days after he returned from his 15 month deployment. I just remember thinking that a whole year was such a long time. How would I… Read More »
