    Good luck. Now you are going active are you going to be stationed at a base here in the US or going overseas? My husband also active just found out that he is deploying as well. I thought that the reserves were coming into the bases here and the 'current' active duty are going over.

    Military brat and wife here. You have no idea how thankful we are to you and those who serve with you. I know it is scary and seemingly unfair, but we are all with you and you, your family and all your service mates are in our hearts, minds and prayers...Maybe you could send a snail mail and /or email address when you get to where you're going so we can keep your spirits up to the best of OUR abilities...{{{{{}}}}

    My husband is an active duty Marine and we just found out yesterday that he is leaving on Sunday.

    I hope you time away from your family is short. Stay safe. We are proud of you and you should be proud of yourself.

    Best of luck to you and your family. I was in the Navy and my husband is still in. He just finished 4 years of sea duty where he was gone most of the time. So, I definately understand what is involved in deploying and being seperated from your loved ones. You are definately appreciated for doing your part.
