Introduction and Deployment questions
I've always felt drawn to this board as my fiancee is an Army civilian. He was in the Army but got out 4 years ago. Because of his background he has been asked to deploy early next year for 9 months. I'm am TOTALLY new to this, never ever been thru one, didn't have a military father etc.
We are a second time marriage. I have children so this is tough. Our October 10 wedding is toast! So now we have to wait to set another date until we talk to the Priest.
Onto to the deployment/Christmas question. He will be at a desk over there, so I bought him a digital photo frame so he can have updated pics of the kids. He has been essentially their daddy for the last two years. What can I do to ease their transitions (we haven't told them yet). What can I buy for Christmas for the kids or him that will ease it when it comes?
Thanks in Advance,
