I just found out that my husband will be going IA. He just recently returned from a 6-month deployment, left again for a surge (which are usually around 3-4 months of time) and then will come home for an undisclosed short amount of time and goes again for a year immediately following. Since, I just found out about it I am currently devastated.
Normally, (not during war time) after a regular deployment the Navy will give an 18-month turn around between deployments. After it is all said and done, in roughly 2 years of time my husband will be gone 1 year and 9 months. He will be home for 3 months in two years. I know we are military and this is what we should expect but it still hit me with some force! (To say the least)
At least it will make for some good writing! I will write more on this later! Just had to share my sad (for me) news!
