    deploying, Not all Deploy somewhere. Those in the Combat Fields move around a lot more than others, My 1st tour I spent the whole time in CA, Not until I was stationed at Camp Lejeune, Did I see just how hard it was for those married, When we where preparing go one our Med Float. The Build up and Travel for various Training prior was intense, 1 Month here, 1 month there 3 weeks doing this, Add in 1 Month Air Alert, Then Fly away after that for a couple weeks. I was Single, no problem, It is tough on married Folks, No doubt.
