I'm hoping to connect to some families that are going through this, too. My husband is a Navy reservist whose unit has been activated. We were told that predeployment would be in the summer and all the rest of his "stuff" would be dealt with next year. But surprise, surprise the Navy changed its mind. We were given a week's notice that he was to pack and fly down to Mississippi for school and he would join his unit in training right after graduation. So now he's gone for a year. Since he's a reservist I don't have any military contacts or support. He was Army for 9 years and recently made the switch to Navy. I would just love to speak to someone who understands, or is feeling the same way, or has been through this before and can tell me it will be alright. He's never been away from us this long and it's a hard thing to wrap my mind around.
