COMFORT FOR YOU WHILE THEY’RE AWAY
One day, orders will come and your soldier will be deployed for a time. A military deployment means that your soldier will be transferred to another place in the world to fulfill their contract of service. It will happen. There’s no hiding that. Does this mean that they’ll be placed in a place of danger? No. It merely means that they’ll be away from you and the entire family. This is understandably quite often the single hardest thing a family can go through—everything from waiting for information to looking forward to every scrap of communication, no matter how small. You might even feel alone. But you’re not. The Army family is a strong one, with deep reserves of community and care to support all families through this time. Next door is someone who’s going through what you are or recently has. Across the street is someone else to be leaned on, talked with, or be there just to listen. In the Army family, you’re never alone.
