First Deployment

This is my husbands first deployment since joining the army. I find it rather difficult to go through. I am lonley and I have no family near or anywhere around this area. I feel lost like I am just living a empty day by day life. I know it will get better though I have 8 more months to await his return and I hope things look up. I am so new to the army life and my husband being gone so much. I hope that when he gets back that things will just go back to the normal everday thing but I don't know.

My dad was deployed about three years ago, for 8 months. I was alone with my mom, about 2500 miles from any family. I understand the loneliness, and all I can say is that you're right- it will get better. You'll be okay, and he will come home. My prayers are with all of you.
