My husband has deployed for the third time. We've lived in four states in five years. Its tough. But I love him, and he loves me, and we just stick it out. He will be home in two weeks for R&R! YAY! I keep busy by going to college online, and raising our two sons together. Its not easy, never easy. Some women can't handle it. It definitely takes a strong woman to be married to an active duty soldier. I've been there done that...never gets any better, but I definitely am full of pride for my soldier.
