    OH National Gaurd

    I know what you mean, my maan is OH National Gaurd, and while there are thousands of them deploying, the SOs are so far spread out that you feel isolated. PM me anytime if you want to chat

    My db went down to fort bragg in october and just deployed for afghanistan in december. He is also in the NG for NY. You're not alone, but there aren't many of us I wasn't able to go down to NC for the deployment sadly. He was in the first wave of National Guardsmen going Afghanistan from NY. We can have a little NY club Keep in touch

    Well he left about a month ago. He shut his cell phone off after training. He got an international cell phone. He has only been able to call me once since there, he's called his parents a few times. We have been able to communicate through aim several times. He brought his laptop. I would say the communication depends on where they end up being stationed. The international cell phone is a great thing too, just expensive. DB's is 50 cents a minute. At first it can be harder for them to communicate because they may not get to their base right away. That's what happened with DB. If any of you ladies want any more info please feel free to PM me, I'm on here a lot.
