Soldiers are familiar with the emotions that come with a deployment. They put their lives on hold, including family, jobs and school, to serve. Some will do this multiple times in their career.
Spc. Raul Sanchez, a financial disbursing technician with the 159th Finance Detachment, has deployed three times in nine years.
Although his last deployment interrupted his studies at the Arizona Culinary Institute (ACI), it was the support from the school that allowed him to return home and quickly finish his degree.
