My DH retired in 2000 from the AF. I soooo know what you are going through. He was in the storm...and another "skrimmage" thats not talked about. I was so scared...every time the phone would ring. I essentially raised 4 children alone....dureing that time. Its hard...but you can do it. Be strong..have faith...and tell your DH...THANK YOU! If you need to E Mail me, just to talk...pm me and I will give the E mail addy. We are all here for ya!!
Husband is stationed in Colorado and our youngest son has severe asthma.....simply cannot handle the elevation there. Sooooooo......for the past 2 1/2 years or so, we have lived here in Arkansas and he is there. He comes home twce a year and sees all the new critters his insane wife has added to the family. Sorry your husband is just leaving. I know it is so hard to be apart. We have found lots of ways to "keep things real" so that most of the time it ALMOST feels like we are together.......ALMOST.
