Deployment. The dreaded “D” word. You know it is coming, that it is inevitable and even so, it seems to sneak up on you and elicits a range of emotions akin to riding a rickety roller coaster! It is my hope, that by explaining my roller coaster of feelings that it will help you work through your thoughts and feelings as your family prepares for a deployment.
Finally, it is with a grateful heart that I wish the USS Nimitz fair winds and following seas. So very thankful for the service of all aboard. Be safe and come home soon!
What range of emotions do you feel leading up to a deployment? I have benefited from others sharing their coping mechanisms and encourage you to share!
