Well, we got the call on Dec. 19th that dh's unit was put on alert.  We didn't hear anything until after the New Year.  Dh called his unit, and it was on a voluntary basis.  Well, all those people are failing their SRP, and it looks like he will be forced to go.  The worst part is that he might have to leave on Jan. 20.  His orders will be for 12-18 months.  I don't know if I can take it.  All I feel like doing is crying.  My ds2 took the last deployment of 6 months very hard.  I don't know how it will affect him.  DS3 is also going to take it hard.  I never thought that I would have to be sitting here in this position.  I mean, he is National Guard for petes sake.  His unit has not been deployed before 2001 since the Korean war. 

So, for the next year please keep him in your prayers.  I know that we can really use the extra prayers.

His name is Art. Thank you everyone for your prayers. I never thought that after his last deployment to Germany that I would have to go through this again for a while. He has only been home for about 10 months. I know that it will be a long and tough road. But I will get though it for my boys.

:hugz: Hon. We'll keep him, your family and all the others that are making such a great sacrifice for our country in prayer. I have another friend going through what you are right now. Her husband is also National Guard and is serving in Iraq as is her oldest son.

My thoughts and prayers are with you also. I can't even imagine what you are going through but I am sure you will make it for your boys. Mothers have a great strength as I am sure you know.

Kathy said is so beautifully that I just had to quote her. We do appreciate all those who make these sacrifices to make the world a better, safer place - not only the ones who serve, but the ones who must remain behind. Hang in there and please, lean on us all that you want too. :hug2:
