    Hello September/October Deployments

    Advertisements
    Hey there! I didn't see a thread started for Sept./Oct. deployments so I figured I'd take the plunge.

    I got news from DB last week that he'll be leaving sometime in October. Don't know when, so I figured I'd include Sept. in case. I'm sure there are other ladies out there in my situation. Some of you may know that I met my DB while he was deployed. So this is the first time around that I'm experiencing this part... and so far, I am NOT liking it.

    How ya'll holding up??

    EDIT:
    One Word: OPSEC.

    DH is not, BUT I just wanted to say the anticipation of not knowing was one of the worst parts for me. Get past that, and it's smooth sailing. Plus, you've got one under your belt (in a way) already

    Put on your big girl panties and deal with it like a boss.

    Thanks for the hugs! I've always heard about this stage from the other SOs on here and I always dreaded it. And now its here and I'm like WAHHHH. Not cool, man. Not cool.

    Plus I still haven't figured out if I'm going to be there for his send off or not. I hope I can.. but idk...

    Has be been deployed before?

    DB pretty much volunteered to go and even said to his higher person (i forget what rank) that he better deploy or he won't sign up for two more years. This was after the higher up guy said that DB was the only medic he really trusted to have his back. So that was a compliment.

    Nope he was underway all of May and will have a few short ones before but this will be our longest separation. He's only been in a year tho. Annnnd since he's on a sub our comms will suck.

    Well I'm glad he "wants" to go. And that his superior trusts him so much!!!

    Aw man. My best friend had a DB (now ex) who worked in subs and it was rough. So many to you. Gosh, Idk if I've seen more hugs in one thread before.

    How long will he be gone for this time? I'm not really familiar with how the navy works.

    And yeah, he's moving up pretty well. He's a senior medic right now. Which is crazy awesome considering he's only 21. And that means he'll probably be sitting at a FOB most of the time. He was complaining about it but he even said, "I know you'll be happy. But I'll probably be bored as fuck most of the time." I was like, "Damn right, I'm happy."

    Even though I've sorta been through a deployment, I feel like its still going to be different. Like, He's doing different things and right now things are in the air for me. So I still feel like I don't know what to expect ya know?
