I am Heather, an army national guard wife with a deployed husband. He is currently in a nearby state and has been on active duty since September. He is about to be sent off again, this time for a year. :( You can look for me to be posting a lot because I will need plenty of support!! LOL Anyone else have husbands on active? Take care- Heather

P.S. Thanks Jenn for telling me about the new board

Hi Heather! My dh just left this morning for Kuwait. He has been activated since March 17th, and was at the mobilization station for 2 months. The whole activation thing is hard, but there is plenty of support available. Feel free to e-mail me (maggiejean@hotmail.com)!

Hi Heather,

I'm also a wife of a Army NG soldier who is deployed to Ft. Lewis, WA. He's expected to be gone until the end of August (right during my summer vacation from teaching school)! I don't know if he'll end up going overseas, and I'm done guessing what the military is going to do!! He's also done a 6 month deployment to Kuwait a couple of years back...so I know what it's like to have him very far from home.

Is your dh going to stay stateside? He's an MP? My dh is a police officer in real life (civilian life) LOL! Good luck to both of you and post here often...I think it's going to be a great board!

Hi Heather!

I'm glad you found this board! I hope you come back a lot for support during his deployment. I positively hate deployments!

Love,

Mir - wife to ANG DH who is normally an environmental engineer!
