Wow you are amazing! I too couldn’t do it.  You must be a very understanding person.

I agree with all PPs. I couldn’t and it’s amazing that you can. Just think how much it’ll mean to him to have you waiting at home for him, I’m sure it’s nicer to know you’re missed by a SO while on deployment.

Be strong. Having someone good to come home to is one of the major things that will help him stay sane on deployment.

My brother is in the navy, too.  The first few years, he was gone for months at a time, back for a few days, then gone again for months.  Then he got a few years of working in a different area of the Navy, so he was stationed in New York working at a power plant, and he was home with his wife and kids for years.  Now he’s back on his boat, but at least you’ll have the long period of time with him to look forward to!  

Is he planning to re-enlist?

Sweetie, I know exactly how you feel my Fiance is in Afghainstan and has been there for almost two years. He was suppose to come on March, then June, then September and his camp was attacked and he was injured and I lost contact with him for almost 3 months.

He has made a full recovery but it is so hard and we cant pray enough for these men who put their lives on the line every single day. I know it is difficult but we gather strength from places we never knew we had.

I know your FI/husband will be safe because he is an awesome soldier for them to constantly have him on active duty. He is more than capable of keeping himself safe for you and return to you because you are his center and everything starts and ends with you.

Hopefully, my Fiance will be coming home very soon I am waiting to hear anyday now.

I can’t imagine.  I can imagine it’s sad, difficult, and that you’ll both get through it.  And that’s the best I can do.  I wish there was more I could say but I’ve never been in that situation.

I just want to thank him for serving and you for supporting him.

@bearbear1:  My son is in the Navy, so I can almost relate.  I go weeks, sometimes longer without so much as a phone call.  You will be fine, try to focus on the time that you will get to spend together.  But I understand the worry and the waiting.

Hugs to you.  

And please tell your sailor thank you for serving our country.

@bearbear1:  I think I know which ship is he on. Just stay positive through out everything. You never know what could happen. Maybe you could go see him in port? 🙂 My husband and I are both navy too. He just got home a month ago. Best day of my life.
