After Gunner read my post, he had his own ideas on the silver linings of deployments from his end.
--Not finding an empty bottle of shaving cream because someone used it to shave their legs.
--He gets more sleep, sometimes.
--He gets boxes and letters, it's like Christmas.
--Using what he has been trained to do.
--No decisions on what he has to wear 24/7.
--Someone does his laundry and doesn't complain about it.
--Saves money on shampoo because he shaves his head.
--He knows where everything is, because it is the last place he left it. No one has touched it.
--A sense of accomplishment.
Does your husband have any other silver linings?
