You never really know what soldiers and their wives go through until you're in the midst of it. Yeah, you think and pray for the deployed soldiers, and maybe even their families. Let me tell you this: WE NEED IT! Frank and I were married for one week before we had to leave our home in Washington State to head to our duty station in Kentucky. What a honeymoon. While driving accross the country together was actually really fun, we still knew what was coming when we arrived. Assignments and deployment. It was inevitable, for he had joined the Army during a war. We were married eight weeks to the day when he was deployed for fifteen months to Baghdad.
