Hi, I thought I'd drop by when I saw your post. It must be so hard to be home like that. Do you have a family support group? (from your husband's unit)
Tell me, what worries you about him being away like that, is it his safety or your family at home?
I just returned from Iraq, I am in the Army, so I don't know about ships, but if you want to talk, I'm here for you.
By the way, do you have an American Legion near by? They offer some very good support for military families, they can help you too.
