Heres an idea for you girls! Its a Deployment Marble Jar. You take two jars, get marbles, and put as many marbles as you think days are going to be on the deployment. And as each day passes take on out of “days left” and put it in “days done.” Its a great way to see how the days are passing and fun to watch it empty out and fill the other up! And it doesn’t break OPSEC rules! If you have children its also a fun way for them too!
