My Husband Is DeployedI met my husband 13 years ago, I was 12 at the time, we started "going out" we had our good days and bad days like every young couple does. We dated through our Jr. High years, and through high school, then we started to have a rocky relationship, we split up and went out seperate ways, for about 2 years, we finally saw each other again, and decided to try again. We have been together ever since. We moved in together when I was 16, he was 17. We moved to a different town than our parents, when I was 20 we got pregnant, and had our first child, a beautiful baby girl, still no marriage. We were still together moved plenty of times, and 2 years later we had our second child, when she was 10 months old my boyfriend at the time decided to join the military. (WOW what a life change) We got married in October 24 by November 7 he was gone in basic. The hardest time in my life, he was gone for 6 months in basic, then he had 3 more months of different training, then he finally got his first duty station, and we got to move to be with him. We were there almost 3 months and guess what....Deployment time came for him, we moved back to where we came from, he was gone 4 months came home was home for 1 month, and now he is deployed again, this is the hardest thing I have to deal with, my husband being gone, and we were never apart before, and we have two little girls together. They miss their daddy, and often ask when he is comming home, I have to say when his mission is complete and hope they understand. They often want to call him, and we can't call him, we have to wait for his phone call, and when he doesnt call I am so worried that something has happened, the worst feeling. I can't wait for him to come home so we can all be together once again, this is just the begining, I know we have a long road ahead of us, hopefully it just gets better. I love my husband so much and I am so proud of him.
