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 make it through another deployment?

All the waiting until the Military homecoming just plain old sucks.  But it is worth it. You get to the gym (or wherever you are supposed to be) and you wait.  You wait.  And you wait some more. And …
