    I am Debra, obviously. My husband is AD Navy stationed on an aircraft carrier. We are dealing with the final work-up before deployment. :/

    As far as preparations, we have started talking a lot more to the kids about the upcoming deployment, working the deployment into conversations, etc. We don't want it to be a big surprise for the kids. We want them to have time to process it, ask their questions, etc.

    DH is working on making sure his seabag is complete, which it always is. But it never hurts to update anything. He is also going to be getting all new POA's soon including for taxes, our house & vehicles, a general, medical, etc. As well as updating his will.

    I am saving care package ideas, have started ordering supplies for that, etc. I have also created a list of DH's favorite hygiene products, his boots, shoes, civilian & uniform clothes sizes incase he ever needs something that he cannot get on the ship.

    That's all I can think of for now.

    DH is already on deployment but I wanted to offer some hugs, IMO the leading up to deployment day is worse than the actual deployment .

    We're waiting on the final word too but it hasn't changed in a few weeks so is looking probable. My husband is AD AF and this will be his first real deployment. We're just in the initial process since we thought he was off it, but seems like that's not the case now. We're get POA's ready to go: house building POA for plat, kids, medical, wills for both of us and setting up guardianship if something somehow was to happen to both of us.

    We're contemplating me going home since we want to break our lease with housing here on base anyways. I'm not sure yet though. :-\

    My Boyfriend left last weekend for Afghanistan. I won't get to see him until May. This is our first deployment as a couple, and my first time on this site!
