My husband will be getting deployed for the second time. The first time we weren't married yet but it was still hard as anyone could imagine. We just moved to a new city and state and have a new baby also. I just wanted to know what kind of experiences others have had with deployments. I decided to stay in the city we are currently in instead of going back home. My husband will be missing all of my son's firsts. I know he is already heartbroken about it. If others have stories or ways they coped I would like to hear them.

My husband has not been deployed, YET. I think he will in a year. Do you have contact with the FRG (Family Readiness Group)? It seems as if they always get deployed right after a baby! There are online support groups that are great too. It's tough, military wives are toughies!
