    Call - probably 5 times in 9 months
    Video chat - twice
    Email - daily except when the ship was in River City for about 3 weeks

    There are so many variables that will go into this from one situation to the next that asking/comparing is likely to do nothing more than cause heartache or stress.

    From what I've learned, it varies widely depending on the base and what kinds of missions. Last time DH deployed (he wasn't DH then), I heard from him like 1x/week via fb for a while, but then there were times when it would be like 3 months between contact because the moved out to some really remote COP.

    It really depends on so many factors - what they're doing, how well they are connected to the outside world, what the command is like, etc.

    I will say that I thought DH was able to contact me often and I am grateful for that. Will also say that we could have communicated more if we wanted to, but for us it worked better if we didn't talk to each other every single day.

    I forgot this part... YES!

    Just from hanging around the boards for a while now, it always seems like the folks who have the most communication available AND talk everyday seem to have more issues the people with less. I don't know really why it is that way-- but it really does seem like it's true for a lot of people.

    DH gets on Facebook usually once a day, sometimes less. We've skyped a handful of times. He's never called. Pretty soon we'll only have letters though for the last five monthish of the deployment. That's going to suck.

    When my ex was deployed I got 1 phone call, 5 video chats, and email fairly regularly as long as they weren't on a mission. That was for a year.

    When they are in port, phone calls every day and as many times as he can. FaceTime as much as the internet in his hotel room will allow. Email, as much as he can. Being he is on a submarine it can be few and far between. On our last deployment that was 199 days i got 50 emails. But we didn't email while he was in 5 ports they hit which was 4-7 days long.
