The 94th Engineer Combat Battalion from our post is battling their second summer in Iraq. They were the first unit to stay a full 365 days for OIF I, and now they're back again for OIF III. I am friends with a few of 94th's wives, and I have been so impressed with their fortitude and optimism. They say that the second year is easier than the first...

1 I don't dare ever have a pity party around the wives in my bf's unit. They were in Iraq (Kuwait at first) from Feb. 2003 until Feb. 2004, and this is at least the second deployment for most. Once one of the newbie wives made some kind of complaint about missing an anniversary together, because of this deployment...and another wife said, well, yeah...this is our fifth deployment! Her hubs had been deployed to Bosnia, South America and I don't know where else, but she was an old hand at this...and oh, my goodness, only 2 years older than I am. It definitely is a comfort to hear that it gets easier, I truly believe it does. Because mid-deployment is A LOT easier than the beginning. And oh my goodness...I am like counting single digits now until I see my man...sooo exciting!
