Deployment Dialogue Tips for Military Couples

Deployments are never easy and as most military couples know, they can be hard on relationships. As a dual military couple and veterans of several long term deployments, we can honestly say that using the tools of the weekend, especially dialogue; can help keep you connected heart to heart. We know it is not easy and that in many cases daily dialogue as we learned it will not be possible, but with a little adjustment and effort couples can make dialogue happen and being able to connect on a feeling level can make all the difference in your relationship. The link below contains a file with some recommendations to help during this time.

We know that deployments and redeployments are never easy, but we believe that our WWME weekend strengthened our relationship and using the tools that we learned helped us to not only survive several, but to grow closer to each other. It is a Journey of Discovery…Enjoy!
Chris and Darla Phillips
(Both Retired US Army)

A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.
