CAMO - Connecting All Military Others
Hello there! My name is Bridget and I'm inthe Chicago area. I'm the SO of an Army National Guardsman. We are preparing for both of our first deployments. His first in 17 years and my first as a military SO. He had been put on the list then cancelled from the mission and I was actually upset because he wasn't going. I know he wants to go so badly, that this is what he is trained for, what he's good at and what he wants and it hurt me for him not to go. Well now he's back on the list and is readying his men to go, trying to ready his children for him to go. I'm trying to ready myself to be away from him, trying to ready him to be away, mentally, physically, etc. Just trying to be the support he needs and be the strenght at home while he is so far away. I hae good days and bad days. We got the official mob date the other day and it hit me like a ton of bricks. I bawled and bawled, for some reason it just hit me so hard. I don't know how to prep myself for this. I'm a nurse, I can save lives but right now I can't wrap my brain around this.
