Capt. Mia Jacobs says life's been stressful the last two weeks since her husband Charles deployed to support the operation Odyssey Dawn in Libya.
"I'm so used to having him there helping me," Jacobs says.
The mother of two has been in the military for 26 years, but for the first time is eligible for benefits that come with having a spouse who is deployed.
"It's overwhelming. There's too much stuff out there actually," says Jacobs.
She plans to attend Saturday's Yellow Ribbon Expo -- an event she says comes just in the nick of time.
Military officials say the event will be a "one-stop shop," where 26 organizations catering to military families will answer questions.
"The focus is those who have deployed, are deployed currently, and those who are going to deploy," says Col. Bill Welsh, with the 116th ACW.
