Our First Deployment....

My wonderful Fiance, Ben, and I have been dating since may of 2008. He popped the question on August the 25, 2009! It was the best day of my life. We had planed to get married this June on the beach. He is Active duty  with the Army National Guard. He was supposed to get deployed in Late October of this year for 10 months to Iraq but, we got a phone call last Friday that changed that. He now leaves in April for a year to Afghanistan...this changes everything! It turned my world upside down! I'm proud of him! Everyone wants their freedom, but no one will fight for it! I'm glad my hubby can! So now  we have pushed our wedding date back a year. This is our first deployment together. I'm scared for him, but i'll be here waiting!

I am about to go through a deployment myself... as of now its locked in for november but nothing is ever 100% with the millitary. Please keep us updated on how it goes. Id love it if you would email me too and just let me know what to expect? That would be great. I wish you the best of luck!!! Our men fight for this country :) its kind of bittersweet... Dont let go of faith!
