    I have times I had a fairly solid estimate (though not an exact date) and times when it was completely unknown, without even an estimate.

    I've got a little over a couple months left of this deployment. Feel free to message me if any of you want to chat. I am also in Hawaii, so being in the same time zone as someone helps a lot too

    My fiance just left a couple weeks ago for his first deployment too. It's so rough. We have 3 months to go. So how did you meet your husband? I love those kinds of stories.

    What ? The military didn't stick to it's word on the original date? OMG ... unheard of. NOT! I never ever get my hopes up in the original date.

    Hah, yeah, pretty much. DB is deploying next month but he hasn't been told exactly when. The not knowing of when he's going is stressful as hell, but I imagine it's worse for homecoming dates.

    Actually I think it's stressful on both sides of the equation. Whenever we got close to a date in some weird way I wanted to get it started just so I knew then I was closer to a return home. Not that I was wishing him to go away or anything. I don't deal with the good bye's very well so I just wanted that part over and done.
