Some have already been deployed. While in CA Jorge called home and his brother was sent to the Gulf and the base had been locked down. No incoming or outgoing calls so they were unable to speak to his brothers wife. A friend of mine here has a brother in CA that is in the same situation.

Yes MixedMami it is very scary. My husband is in the military and today he said they got a letter from the president that their commanding general is gonna read to them. I am dieing to know what it is about. I am so scared for my husband. They are on alert here also. I always said I would never marry someone in the military until I met him. I can't imagine knowing that he is gonna go to war. My sister is also married to a man in military and she is 3 and a half months pregnant. She has been crying since she heard about this.
OMG NItra they are already deploying people? I never heard that! Ok now I am really scared.
