We just found out a week ago that my husband is being deployed in two weeks to Balad. A girl in his squadron that was supposed to go got pregnant and now he has to take his place. Of course everyone feels for her and not us. Although I'm ready for a deployment and knew it would happen, they've all had a year to prepare and I get three weeks.. It just pisses me off some. I think im entitled to be a little mad. Anyways, We are based at Hill AFB in utah and my family is 25 hours away in Louisiana. I dont have any friends here and I also have twin toddlers that are in their terrible two's a little early. They turn two on Sept 12 and of course will be potty training alone while my husband is playing his ps3 in Iraq. I'm also 6 wks preggo. I was just posting this convo to ask for support and advice for deployments. Oh and anyone who wants to connect in Utah and keep me sane lol... Thanks!
