Newbie to the group here :-)
My husband has been overseas now since the start of January, deployments we are used to as a military family, but as a civilian family it's definately different. For one not even family or friends understand how it feels, they certainly don't realize that my husband is still in a war zone, all they seem to see is $$ and how he is going to help them out.
Where is the support of the contractors out there and for the families left behind at home, I've yet ot see any of it. Today my Husband and I were talking and something he said, made me wish he was home more than ever, I started crying and that's not something I like doing, I don't want to make things worse for him. He has told me he hates being away, but he now feels like he is doing something to make comms better for the military still out there. I love my Husband dearly and I understand why he is out there, but sometimes I miss him more than anything in the world.
Our son is two and every time he gets to see Daddy on webcam he goes crazy and shouts Daddy Daddy Daddy, it's enough to bring me to tears every time. My husband says he feels guilty being away from us, I just hope thta doesn't stay with him when he does come home.
Anyways that's enough of me ranting, I hope I haven't put anyone off wanting to say "hi" hahahaha.
Hope you all have a great Easter Weekend.
