Hello everyone. I'm new here. Recently married too. Just hoping to make some friends that will be able to relate to what I'm feeling when my husband gets deployed. He already got his orders, but we're waiting to hear when he'll be going.

Welcome to the board. We're always glad to greet more people who will be a source of support for us. There IS safety in numbers. We all kind of look out for each other here.

I'm Melissa, an army wife in TX. My DH also received his orders and will be leaving shortly. Like you, we don't exactly when either. (Not that I would post it on the board anyway!! LOL)

Welcome to the board. Although my dh hasn't gotten orders so far I can kind of relate

to you. I have been married for almost for 4 years, but my dh has only been in

the Army since may of 02. So I'm still trying to get use to this military life stuff.

Anyways, you've come to the perfect place to find people who understand what you are

going through. Everyone here is always willing to help when/ if they can. So, welcome

again, :-) April :-)

Hi, my name is Blair and I just wanted to let you know that I am new to the message boards and being a military wife also. I've been with my husband for 3 years, married on September 19, 2002 and he reenlisted to the army. He left for his base at FT.Stewart,GA on October 1,2002 I was going to be on my way down there when suddenly he got orders to go to Kuwait. So he left to go there on October 24, 2002. At that time I was 6 1/2 months pregnant, so I just stayed at home with my family incase he wasn't able to come home for the delivery. Luckily he was able to come home for the week of my due date. So he got to meet his son and spend a week with him. So maybe you and I can be new together and work through this tough time. Feel free to email me. I am normally available when the baby is sleeping and the house is taken care of. Good luck and congratulations on your marriage.
