Life After Deployment

Learning to function as a single parent following the deployment of your service member-spouse can be a difficult time, but what about lerning to live as a family again following their return?


A family member embraces her soldier June 18, 2012, after a redeployment ceremony that honored Soldiers from 1st Brigade Combat Team, 1st Cavalry Division main-body-five as they returned to Fort Hood, Texas, from a year-long-tour in Iraq and Kuwait.

After months of raising kids, grocery shopping and paying bills all on your own, sharing control of reins can be as difficult to do as it was figuring out how to do it all on your own.

If you feel this way, know that you’re not alone.
