The one thing my husband wants on deployment is letters. Even if we get to chat online or talk on the phone often, he likes handwritten letters. And I like writing, so it's a win-win.
Thus it's always a little bittersweet for me when wenear the end of the deployment and have to cut off the flow ofmail. It should be such an exciting feeling, but sometimes it makes me feel disconnected from my husband, that I can't compose a thought and throw it in the mailbox.
But the end of mail means the end of deployment is nigh. And that is definitely a good thing.
