Thomasville - It's business as usual for Judy Young. She answers phones, prepares paperwork, and stays busy to keep her mind off of her husband. But when she leaves work, well, that's another story.

She says, "It's stressful, different, very different, challenging. We've adjusted. You adjust, but you don't get used to it."

Mrs. Young's husband, Staff Sergeant Johnny Young, is in Kuwait, waiting to be relieved of his tour of duty in late March.

She says, "We've heard this before, and it's just another date, another time. Here we go again, but now since it seemed to have been confirmed I think everybody's every much relieved, but we won't take that aside until we see them get off that plane."

A day that can't come too soon. "It's going to be wonderful," says Young. "It really is. We're already planning making vacation plans, and we never took an official honeymoon, so that's kind of in the making also."

And all the men and women of the 1148th who have been missed so much, will finally be home. The 1148th's mission should be complete by March 23rd, they are expected back at Ft. Benning by mid-April.
