I just found out my son Jon will be going on overseas deployment Monday. Its only two months. I know where but can't say. He says its 'no big deal' but of course that IS what he would say.

It IS a little different when its your child. Not worse...just...different.

I can't even imagine if it were one of my kids. If he's anywhere near my hubby, he'd be happy to check in on him!

How do you think he's feeling about it? How's your husband doing too? Anything we can do for you?

He might be 'near' your hubby at some point but not in a position where they could get in touch with each other...its one of 'those' situations. :wink1:

Dave grew up in the Air Force, been in the military and done TD himself.. so this is old stuff for him.

For me..the usual thoughts and prayers that you all send out for everyone else.

I honestly couldn't imagine if it were my child going over there. I hope these two months fly by quickly and he returns safe and sound. If theres anything we can do let us know!

p.s. I love that Bono icon
