Spouses in Germany have own predeployment training

Spouses in Germany have own predeployment training

European edition, Wednesday, November 28, 2007

BAUMHOLDER, Germany Jeannette Morales already has been through four deployments as a soldiers spouse, but on Tuesday morning she was among the Army wives getting the lowdown on what to expect during the 2nd Brigade, 1st Armored Divisions looming mission in Iraq.

Even for spouses experienced with the rigors and emotional strain of a deployment, such meetings continue to play an important role in preparing for whats ahead, according to Morales.

Many young people come here from the States and expect that things are going to continue the same way, Morales said. The young spouses need to understand a change is coming.

Army Community Services in Baumholder conducted a series of presentations Tuesday aimed at helping spouses prepare. The program Spouse Battlemind Training is an introduction to the various psychological and practical concerns that typically arise during a deployment.

Identify now the things that are a problem, advised Kathy Ledbetter, Baumholders ACS director.

Then make a plan with your spouse, she continued.
