Career on Hold
When I received news of the deployment, I was in the middle of applying for an open management position, responsible for all networking, hardware, and security for washingtonpost.com.
I emailed Zach, the hiring Director, to withdraw my resume from consideration. His reply was simple and appreciated.

I could have filled this position. The opportunity was an excellent one. I've been looking for this type of responsibility to the company ever since I returned from flight school, 5 months ago.
This is one of many disruptions experienced as a result of this deployment. I cannot imagine what deployment does to other members of the Guard and Reserve, especially those with families.
