We’ve been there from the Army side of things. Darling Husband put his 4 years in and he got home in November. He has a 15 month tour of southern Iraq under his belt

We’ve been utilizing the Military board as a general Not Wedding Related Military board. It’s not very active–there aren’t that many military members floating around.

Deployment wasn’t so bad. I was in college and really busy! Plus we have the internet nowadays =]

I’m looking at our first deployment (Army) coming up probably in 2011. For now I am generally okay with it (slow process of coming to terms) but I know there is no way to prepare for the day when I find out it’s coming for sure, and the day when he actually leaves. I’m just glad I have plenty of (online) role models and acquaintances who have been through it, and I’ll have family and friends supporting me as well!

Feel free to use the military board for any military related topic!  People do the same thing in all the other culture/faith boards.  Maybe we can get some more military representing here on the ‘bee!

A military board would be cool…except right now I’m having a “I’m going to strangle someone” moment thanks to the military.  Sigh…I was soooo close to being able to see the Darling Husband in a few weeks and they changed the dates of his 4 day weekend yet again.  So, $800 later in airline tickets, a very grumpy wife, and totally bummed mood…Here I am again.  Normally I’m not such a baby, but I haven’t seen him since a week after the wedding, which is coming up on the 3 month mark.  Uggg…I wish I could go cry a river, but I’m at work and I don’t think the guys in the office would appreciate the waterworks.

But…it would be nice to have some gals to chat with that understand the frustrations ( and perks lol) of the military.

Yes! A Not Wedding Related military board would be great. As a soon-to-be military wife I feel completely unprepared/uninformed about military processes/procedures/etc. The Fiance tries to be as helpful as he can but there are just somethings he doesn’t know the answer to. In addition we are preparing for his second deployment (due to stop loss… thanks US Army!) 6 months after our wedding. πŸ™

@ Miss Riley.  Has he officially been informed that he’s being stop lossed?  That was supposed to have ended in Jan 2010 for active duty military.  I’m facing the same situation w/ my Darling Husband, so I would appreciate all the info you have!

Yeah, there have been numerous strangle moments. lol  I’m learning the ropes though.  I think the most annoying thing is never having any answers.  Like, right now….Darling Husband is supposed to be getting out of the army in Oct., at the same exact time his unit is deploying.  Well, through extenesive google searches, I have found recent articles on the Army’s website saying that no more soldiers will be stop lossed after June 2010 and all soldiers that have been stop lossed will be back by March 2011…and then there’s the possibility of early separation if your unit is deploying but you are ETSing.  I would just like to know, ya know? lol  Having an answer would make it much easier to prepare yourself!

Well our situation is still up in the air. Right now his unit is scheduled to deploy early next year and his contract is supposed to be over about 8 months into the 12 month deployment. BUT things always change with the military. I have found nothing is set in stone and now matter how final a decision seems to be EVERYTHING can be modified. I know that is no help… we just try to stay as flexible as possible.
