the movement of troops or equipment to a place or position for military
has a definition that most people understand. The
word itself can bring a vast array of emotions with it. To a politician, the word
may mean that our country needs to defend its freedom. That drastic
measures are needed to protect America. To a young college student, the
word may seem like a way to tear the world apart more than it already is.
Something that is not necessary. To a military family, the word means a
temporary loss of a beloved family member. That their life is interrupted for
the safety of our country.
No matter how the word
makes you personally feel, please be
sensitive to those around you. You never know who around you are affected
by a deployment. You co-workers only child may have just been deployed for
the first time. A mother trying to wrangle all four children at a restaurant
may have just had her husband deployed. She is getting used to doing
everything all by herself.
means our country staying strong and united. It means
supporting military families that have a parent overseas. It means creating
community for those involved to express their frustrations and wins. That is
what Deployed Love is about. Creating a community for military families
