    Life can be funny sometimes.

    One moment you are single as single comes the next minute you find your best friend and love of your life and soon after you realize he will be gone for 21.5 weeks. I never thought I would end up in this situation but I am extremely happy I did! Can't sleep just up thinking of...

    Both of my husbands were military servicemen.

    Let me qualify that statement. My first husband was a Major in the USAF. He died on September 11, 2001 when the plane he was on hit the Pentagon in Washington D.C. My second husband retired as a Lt. Colonel in the USAF.

    Would anyone know in how much communication to

    expect during a deployment. My boyfriend and I before would communicate on skype and video chat everyday, and now he normally will go two days without messaging me. This is my first deployment and I understand that some days he cannot always talk to me.
