Think to yourself for a moment, your mother, father, bother, or sister is about to get on a bus that will take them to a port to get on a huge aircraft carrier, which then takes them into the middle of the ocean. While they are in the middle of the ocean they have no contacted with the outside world what so ever, besides email. Oh, and on top of all that, they cannot tell you where they are and sometimes you won’t receive an email for weeks, so you are sitting there worried sick because you have no idea what is going or if they are okay. You have just imagined the feeling that family members go through when one of their loved ones gets deployed. I have gone through two deployments with my brother and I will be going through a third one sometime in 2014. Both of those deployments were unbelievably hard on my parents and I. The first deployment was a rude awakening, not only did my brother get on that boat, my best friend was on it. My brother is my best friend, my go to guy, could you imagine losing both of those things for 6 months and plus? You would think that the first deployment would be the hardest, well in my case it was not, the second one was the hardest thing I have had to deal with, with him being in the Military. You might be thinking to yourself, why was the second one so much harder than the first? Well the second deployment was during my senior year, the year where a girl gets to shine. With my brother being on that aircraft carrier, he missed everything. He missed my prom, my graduation, and my graduation party. But my brother made sure he was still there some how. What I mean by that is, he had his best friend, Ron Brown, be there for everything and I mean everything. So if you are going through a hard time and missing a loved one, look towards their best friend. You will be surprised what their best friend does will remind you of your loved one. If I didn’t have my brothers best friend at all of those events, it would not have been the same. Keep your chin up because your mother, father, brother, or sister does not want you to be sad during the time you get to shine the most!(:Image
