Don’t pry

While you’re there to be a listening ear, allow the family to steer the conversation as it relates to the deployment. Now is not the time to play therapist or try to get into their heads. If the family feels comfortable enough to open up about their concerns or emotions concerning the deployment, they will bring it up first.
