The Deployment ABCs is a 26-week series where I cover every deployment-related topic, from care packages to homecomings to OPSEC. Tips, tricks and maybe a resource or two to help military spouses navigate their way through the craziness that is a deployment. If there’s a topic you’d like for me to cover or are interested in adding your own thoughts to, send me an email and we’ll chat!

Luckily, I have an endless supply of dachshund love thanks to B. Sometimes it feels that my sense of humor isn’t quite as endless, but when I’m feeling down, a funny Netflix show can really help bring me out of my funk. Of course, I need flat rate boxes for as many care packages as I can possibly put together. And that strong Internet connection? Video chat central.
What are your deployment needs?
