Article and other news...

Morning loves! So I wanted to share this article with you all. This is about a local unit from Ft. Carson- my brother-in-law's Unit actually; 4th En Bn. They were deployed to Camp Victory and after being in country for a short time they received new orders, to Afghanistan. Well my sister and her family were stationed out at Ft. Riley (KS- ugh...) then PCSed here to Ft. Carson where he was placed in 4th Engineers. The unit deployed in February, but because he was still owed dwell time from his previous unit and deployment he isn't set to leave until June (give or take of course). Instead of going to Iraq he'll head straight back to Afghanistan (where he was his last 15-month deployment!). Well, I wanted to share what I feel is news-worthy with you ladies!

Also, has anyone else had issues or heard of any other side-effects from our men being overseas? I have heard from a few other Army Wives that they have experienced problems getting pregnant...? Similar to "Saudi Syndrome" from the first time our military was deployed to the Middle East. I haven't been able to find any articles or documentation of this problem but since I've heard a handful of people I know discussing it I thought I would see if you all have heard or experienced anything similar.

Hubby and I were trying to conceive for over a year...he served a year tour in Iraq right before we met. We've had difficulties getting preggers but I can't be sure that it's due to the deployment or not...we will see when he gets back from this deployment and we start trying again. Dear God I hope we don't have issues because of him being over seas!

thanks for the link to the article. i think the picture on the left when you open it might be my husband, i sent him an email to ask! but you know they all look similar in the uniforms and it's even harder to tell when they're wearing sunglasses lol.

I haven't heard of any problems regarding to that and being overseas. I know the unit that matt's with that they give them all kinds of vitamins to take everyday....

Hmmmmm, interesting...I haven't heard of that either. My hubby and I were not married and not trying when he got back so I can't say:p I know theres definite side effects in other areas though after deployment...I'm sure most military wives/significant others have experienced this after they have come back home.
