I'm so excited. He is scheduled to be home this week. I can't wait!

I just wanted to thank you for being here when I was having difficulty. It really helped to vent to people who understand.

Since this is his lifestyle/career, he will soon be gone again, but in the meantime we plan to enjoy our time together.

I'm very excited for you, but please edit your post. It is a violation of OPSEC and our safety guidelines to post specifics dates for movement (i.e. departures, arrivals, etc). Though your SO is a civilian contractor, the same rules apply.

I edited it. Although, his "home" date, departure date/location (not posted), and arrival in U.S. date/location (not posted) are all different bc there are several legs of the journey involved, so the day would really mean nothing to anyone else, and people are coming out of there all the time....but I took it out anyway!

In any case, he's been delayed. Serious BOO! on that. I just want him home already. :( Hurry up!!!

Thank you. And I know it doesn't seem like some of the information we/OPSEC dictate(s) shouldn't be shared seems ridiculous because it doesn't seem like you're revealing anything at all, but if you know anything about how "the enemy" mines for data, even the smallest thing can be the key. It's truly scary how much information they can piece together from people revealing essentially "nothing" -- even when they do so in places considered private (like a social networking account set to be completely private). Naturally, there are times when we all have to weigh the risks against the benefits (such as in choosing what's acceptable to talk about via instant message or private blogs with a deployed spouse/SO), but we do try to keep things as safe as possible here since it's a public forum that pretty much cries out to be mined for data due to its name alone. Thanks for editing!

And I'm sorry he was delayed. It sucks when that happens!
