You probably have heard all sorts of deployment advice. Some good, some not so good. The truth is that deployment isn’t easy. There is no “one thing” that makes it easy.

Everyone is different. Some may have ambitious goals of things to complete while their loved one is away, some may just end up drinking wine and watching movies.

There is one thing that I always suggest to everyone going through any kind of separation or deployment. REMEMBER your time apart! When you are together, you should live every single day like they are deployed. But it’s easy to forget about those long, lonely nights. It’s easy to take someone for granted when you see them all the time.

So what can you do? What will help you organize your thoughts and really help you remember and look back on your time apart? Keep a Deployment Journal.

Not only will this help you get through deployment one month at a time, it will also make an amazing and unique gift that your loved one can look back on as well.

About the Author: Kara Fidd

Kara gave birth to her little boy while her husband was away. While filling out her sons baby book, she wished there was something similar for people going through separations (deployments, boot camp, etc) from their spouse. She decided she would fix that.
