Field Problem: Preparing for a Parent to Leave

Field Problem: Preparing for a Parent to Leave

Dear, Field Problems:

My husband is leaving for basic in a few weeks. Between basic and AIT, he will be gone about eight months. We have a 2-year-old and a 15-month-old. I am wanting some advice on how to prepare and make the separation easier on my oldest. I know this isn’t a deployment by any stretch of the imagination, but communication will be limited. Any advice you could give me would be greatly appreciated!

Field Problem: Pre-Deployment Anxiety

Dear, Field Problems:

I recently found out my husband will be deploying soon. We have three children, and I’m really scared about him going. I have nightmares and crying spells, and though we’ve talked about what I would do if something were to happen, it doesn’t seem to help me feel better. How do I deal with these feelings? I’m a wreck already, and he doesn’t even leave for months. Can you help?
