Father's Day in the military

Does anyone have their dad or child's dad in the military and away from home? How do you stay close? Skype, email?

    My husband is away in the Navy, but he's on a ship, so we can't stay in contact very often. We can e-mail, but he might not always be able to answer them quickly. Our best chances are the rare times he's in a port somewhere, with potential internet access. The past few days, before he was actually on the ship, we used Skype, since they were in a hotel. We were able to video chat. Otherwise, yeah, it'll be e-mail, and ya never know when he'll be able to get to that.
