Dear Deployment,

You stress me out to no end I think you really suck. I just thank god you don’t come as often as my monthly friend does. How does one actually prepare for you? Personally, I’m never prepared to be separated from the love of my life. You’re just not fair. You get to have him for months at a time and I have to sit by the phone waiting for a call or raise to the mailbox hoping there is a letter. You really limit my communication and, frankly, it blows. I just hope you’re happy.

P.S. I want him back!

Deployment sucks! There’s no other way to put it.

I dreamt of a knight in shining armor. I got a man in uniform. Reality is unlike the fairytale but I wouldn’t trade it for anything.

You’re a strong woman. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. You married a soldier, after all.

Our calls maybe short and far in between, but they’re still the best time of any day for me.
