GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) - On our Project Homefront, we are featuring the family of Gulfport Seabee Robert Salter. Although he is stationed in Gulfport, he is now on deployment in Africa with NMCB 7.
Robert left back in February and will not be home until sometime in December. The couple has two little girls who miss their daddy very much.
"The hard time is when your baby does not want to go to sleep," his wife Deanna told us. "My four year old never goes to sleep without making sure she tells me she wants her daddy. We have daddy dolls that I bought them, and she sleeps with it every night. They are like little mice sized dolls with his picture on it, that assure her that daddy will be home by your birthday."
Deanna runs a small day care center out of her home. She is also the president of the base family support group unit. With her outgoing personality and her optimistic and upbeat spirit, she is perfect for the job.
"I felt like I needed to show my happiness, show my commitment and show my support towards my husband, to other people," she said in explaining why she volunteered to head the family support group.
Deanna also pointed out that there is a positive side to being married to a man who deploys so frequently. For one thing, she has learned a lot about herself.
"I have learned to adjust, I have learned to explore myself a little bit more and open up to different lives and different people. I just want to thank my husband for being who he is, I mean, he has made my family, our family into who we are today."
Deanna says Robert has every intention of making the Seabees his career. As far as Deanna is concerned, that's great news.
"I have no regrets at all. I would not change it for the world; I would not. This is our living, this is our way of life, and I will always be a Navy wife."
Deanna added, she and her girls can't wait until December arrives and her husband Robert is back home in time for Christmas.
