My S/O has been deployed since January and everyday since we would talk like every day. There were sometimes were we didn't talk and it is happening again and the long he is away the harder it gets. Thank God he is coming home in July for two weeks then he goes back for 6 months. I try to talk to my friends about all this but they don't understand any of it because they don't deal with military people. Think its easier when you talk to people going through the same thing or has gone through the same thing. Now I am still pretty new to the Army life so any tips, rules, or anything is welcome.
