Talking to daddy while he's deployed


My husband had been deployed for several months by the time COVID-19 struck our country/community. We have been through several deployments before, but this one was much different as COVID-19 knows no borders so my husband was impacted by the same lockdown and unknown that we were here in South Burlington as he is thousands of miles away. Here he is talking with out daughter as she asks him in her 3 year old English if he is "fighting the Coronavirus". Having your partner gone during a worldwide pandemic and not having any clue what the future holds definitely brought on a new emotion I've never felt.
