When I was active duty, I had the luxury of predicting my deployment to South Korea. That is, in my field, a “remote” to Korea was almost inevitable. So, when it happened, the shock was slightly mitigated by conditioning.
For me, leaving—the actual departure—was the toughest. But when I returned, I found that my wife, with whom I left 4 young children, had adapted well to being a single mother. She adapted so well, there were times when I felt almost obsolete.
But just as we had both adjusted to new paradigms (the separation), we worked together to create a new paradigm.
