Do you have a deployment motto? Something that just summed it up for you or got you through?
My sum-up was "Deployments never get easier, they just get old." Every new day sucked just as much as the one before it, sometimes even more. I don't think I ever got to the point that I found an inspirational motto to get me through. When he was gone my siggy said "I love him like breathing and without him here I'm holding my breath."
How about you?
