On a serious note

Here's a tip that one of our UT spouses was kind enough to point out - "Sometimes you will not hear back from folks serving on an unaccompanied tour for lots of good reasons, none of which means they are unsafe.  There may be travel delays, communication irregularities, power outages, or they are simply busy and can't call/email/Skype at that time.  If I were to share a lesson learned here it is: I did WAY too much "Worst case scenario" thinking when my husband was deployed to Afghanistan.  It didn't help me cope at all and actually wore me down."
