The dreaded D-word… Deployment.
Any MILSO despises discussing this topic. We avoid it as long as possible, but unfortunately it’s a very real part of MILSO life. Eventually, your SOs may be taken away from you for extended periods of time without your say whatsoever. It’s just part of their job, this life, and supporting your service members.
My Love and I not only survived his first Deployment but we thrived as a new couple… It strengthened our relationship in ways we didn’t even know needed strengthening. Soon we will be experiencing his second deployment, during which, I hope to continue building and reinforcing the relationship we have created.
Just take deployment one day at a time… It’ll be over before you know!
