Being here to experience this was an emotional time for me as it’s my husband’s first deployment. Honestly, I’m terrible with goodbyes because I can never seem to hold it together as I find it too sad to be parted with a loved one. I did long distance for 3 and a half years before I moved to the US, but no goodbye has ever felt as depressing as this.
Today, 290 soldiers left to go all over the Middle East for approximately 9-10 months and I cannot imagine what they must be feeling or what must be running through their minds. I’m sure it must be a nervous time for all of them.
Hoping and praying for their safe return home!
