I met my soldier in high school fell and fell in love not expecting to find my husband and soul mate. I then found out i was pregnant the day before he was leaving to finish his last five month term in military school. I patiently waited for him to come home so we could prepare for our daughter and be a family. Little did i know that he had signed up for the army before graduating. (i look back now and its not as bad i thought)Because of some unknown reason we had no contact at all for the entire three months he was in basic training.Our daughter was born two days before he graduated from basic training and then he was sent to job training for another five months!When he finally finished his training we had been separated in different states for a total of 19 months!
We are now stationed at Ft. Hood Texas and are doing ok. He is scheduled to deploy for Iraq in April for 12 months. He is a crew chief for the black hawks so its a little scary but it could be worse and i feel for those who do have it worse. but i guess i can be thankful that im no stranger to separation.
