Never in a million years would I have imagined that I would be sitting in my living room one day, scared to death for the future of my children and my family.  When my husband and I were first married, I was told I had to attend classes to understand the military, how it works, and my duty as a dependant of military, and how I needed to be prepared at all times for possible deployment, how I needed to be prepared to carry on by myself without my husband if/and/or when the time came.  Now I sit scared, and unprepared.  Not only do I have to worry about my husband, but I have to worry about our family that he'll leave behind when he deploys.  Then guilt sets in.  I have so much to be thankful for, life to look forward to.  I have never felt so many different emotions at one time.  I feel we need to close our borders for now...Bush needs to ask the American people the same question that he asked the other countries. Are you with us? Or not?  Are you with us? or with the terrorist?  We need to close our borders and find out who the good guys are, who the bad guys are that are in our country.
Does anyone else feel this way? Or am I so full of anger and fear that I can no longer feel safe in my home/state/country?

Live today as if it's your last.  Love today as if it's your first.   Lisa

You know, my mother feels exactly the same way so you're not alone. The only difference is that she's Australian. I don't think that making people for or against the terrorists will do any good. They could be against the way America is handling it which would, to the public eye, make them agreeable to the workings of terrorist activities. I personally don't think that war is needed to solve this which would place me on the terrorists side. That couldn't be any further from the truth.
We will all just have to wait and see what comes of this. I do feel for you though. Only time will tell where this is heading.

I stand with America.  In America.  For America.

I also applaud Bush, his common sense, and the team that he has surrounded himself with, for they are a compassionate, determining group of men and women, and are dealing with all avenues of how best to act.  No "re-act", but Act.

Please tell your husband, "thank you" from a very, very grateful citizen.

As the son of a career Marine I remember the times Dad went overseas and my mother had to take care of my sister and me.  I think I understand how you feel in that regard.

I spent two tours in Vietnam so I can understand how a soldier feels going into harm's way.  

My eldest son is a Captain in the Army.  His wife not only has to take care of herself, but she has the added responsibility of making sure the families of the men and women my son commands will make it through the time of deployment as comfortably as possible.

The one thing my mother and my daughter-in-law have in common is they trust in God, the training their husbands received, and the strength of the American people.

It is normal to be afraid for your loved ones, and maybe for yourself.  However, your husband was well trained and I am sure he knows his job well.  Give him all your support and as much strength as you can share, wrap it in love and you will do fine.

I will be happy to answe any questions you might have and give you some resources to help.  Just let me know what outfit your husband is in and I can get you most anything you need.

God bless you and your family.

I am sure you are having a very scary time right now, I don't blame you a bit. Your husband will be doing something so valuable, and thank God there are people that will. Though I don't like any of the war ideas at all, I don't know what other answer there is. I'm glad I'm not in charge of these decisions.
Take care, you will be fine, a strong military spouse, and American.
Peace
Sandra
