    I'm curious as to those that have been away from relatives in the military. How long where you away from your loved ones?

    I've gone a year without seeing relatives while in the Marines. Before I got divorced, the longest I was away from my wife was 7 months while deployed.

    I didn't see family from October, '78 when I PCS'd from Tech School to RAF Bentwaters, UK, to October, '81 when I got married and went home to introduce my wife to my family.

    I try to see my family once a year now for at least a couple weeks, but it's never enough :sadwavey:
