My husband was in the Navy. When people think about deployments, they always think about them going to Afghanistan or Iraq. My husband didn't, he was in a squadron that trained pilots to fight, he worked on the jets. So they did exercises all over the country and in Japan. He was away from home about half of the time he was in. I just got used to him being gone and I spent a lot of time talking on the phone with family to occupy my time. After our son was born, that kept me busy!
