New @ Being An Army Wife....

I have to say that I've never been with anyone that's been in the military until now. My husband is an MP for the army national guard. He's been in the army as an MP before but in this time that I've been with him when he's in the army.......it's kinda exciting as well as scary for me. He'll be getting deployed soon to afganistan for 1 year and I'm scared. He's the BEST thing that's ever happened to me!!!! we have a beautiful daughter together and I'm scared that he'll get hurt while gone and I wouldnt know what to do or how to react. I got on here to meet army wives like myself and maybe get some advice on stuff. Maybe the answers will put me at ease about this.

You definitley are in the right place!!! We can all relate to your fears, and UNDERSTAND what you are going through and will go through! My hubby is deployed in Afghanistan, we have 4 months left....It has been hard, really hard I am no going to lie! But as I have told others it makes you a much stronger wife, mother and all around woman! This group of ladies are awesome! We are all here for each other! Vent, ask, cry and laugh as much as you need to! ANYTIME!

you came to the right place Im an army wife and my husband is deployed I miss my husband like crazy the best thing that I can tell you is support each other be there for other it will be hard but as long as you communicate with him you'll be alright and remember no news is good news always try to think positive
