I've been an Army wife for 11 years now and my husband has been EXTREMELY fortunate to have not been deployed. We found out last week that he's going to be going in either Jan. or Feb. He's a K9 MP and he just switched to a bomb dog so it's supposed to be a 6 month tour. Just wondering if anyone has any advice on how to break it to the kids (even though they're 12 and 9 they're both close to their dad) and how to deal with all the changes that are inevitible with a deployment.
