    Talking roll call

    Hi ladies! I'm kind of new to the site and just wanted to check in with all of you who are "in" the military so to speak. I currently live in VA with my boyfriend. I've been here 6 years. Right now he isn't going to have to deploy anywhere but I know that can change in a matter of minutes.

    so how about the rest of you? Anyone around my area?

    I'm an Air Force Wife of 15 years. My hubby is home but can be gone at a moments notice like your bf. My Father is over in the sandbox now. He's not military but is contracted out by a company who works closely with the military. He is in one of those "undisclosed locations". So I am on pins and needles over that. If my hubby goes I'll be doubly worried. It's so scary!

    We are stationed on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. DH is not deployed yet, but he has been put on notice. I work for a contractor that works in many hotspots (Bosnia, Kosavo, Qa'tar) so I have a number of friends in the field.
    I am kind of used to the drill, my dad was Army so the military way of doing things is natural to me.

    Hello. My hubby is deployed right now to Germany, but will be home in less than 43 days. I have been counting the days, and finally it is getting closer. Since he is in the National Guard, I never thought that he would have to go anywhere. What a surprise when his unit got the call. But thank god it is almost over. I hope and pray that he doesn't have to go anywhere else. Just wanted to say hello

    My dad is retired, but my Uncle is a Colonel in the Army and is in Afghanistan at Baghram right now, he's been there almost a year now. He is Director of Information Systems for Operation Freedom. His son is stationed in Alaska. If you are interested I will post a copy of the last two emails he has sent out to friends and family about what is going on. over there. I will post them in this forum.

    Hi all, my son is in Marine boot (Parris Island) as we speak. He graduates Valentine's Day, will be home for 10 days, head to NC for combat training, then to California for who knows how long. What a roller coaster ride!

    Glad to see some seasoned family here! this is a whole new world for us!
