Gary's Going Back to Afghanistan

I am just beside myself with grief. This feels worse than when he first deployed. His unit had tentatively been scheduled to come home the middle of July. They've been extended. I am not even sure what I'm going to do. It's overwhelming to think of being all alone. Vicky just moved out. I'll be all alone. I don't know a single person in my FRG (Family Readiness Group) because he changed companies while he was deployed. I'm just so sad. I'm so scared too.

I am so sorry. I know you have your on line friends, but that sure doesn't help when you want someone in the flesh to talk to. I really don't know what to say, except keep us posted and I'll be thinking of you.

I hate the word "extended." How long is it this time?

Oliver's company still doesn't have orders to deploy... and I'm like, are they going, or possibly not going? Last night I cried myself to sleep because I was back to back with him, feeling him next to me, and I knew that one day, I won't have that feeling. I'm just so incapable of not thinking about it. I mean, I hate knowing they're leaving. I want so bad to get it over with NOW instead of 'sometime in September.' I want so much more for them to never get those dang orders.

I wish they'd start coming home. All of our soldiers.

Hopefully soon.

wow I am so sorry to hear that...I met Ken when he was already retired from the Navy so I have never had to deal with it, but just thinking about it scares me so I know you must be like 50 miles past that...if ever you need anything just let me know...anytime
