Hello. I'm new to the group. My husband is in the Army and has also worked for the DOD as a contractor for multiple years. He is getting ready to go back to Afghansitan in about a month. This time it is with the DOD. He will be gone for between a year and 16 months. He will get a couple of R&Rs though.
We are trying to make this as easy as possible for all of us. My daughter is so little that she likely won't remember him between R&Rs. Do any of you have kids this young? Did using webcams and pictures help your children remember your spouse or make them more comfortable when they came back?
Do you have any advice?
Is it ok for me to be here even though he is technically going with the DOD this time?
