    Does anyone know how this effects the soldiers who have just left for BCT? Has it been delayed or is everything going as planned?

    I am engaged to a man in the army,

    he Is stationed in Germany. I live in Texas. It's hard... Lately I feel like I have to beg him to call, text, or even be nice. I hate this ): I don't wanna loose him but I feel like if I don't speak up and say something then he will never know how I feel. Any ideas?

    For anyone who's had their SO go through BCT for the Army, how long did it take for the letter from the commander to be mailed out? He was told by his recruiter that he could list me as the person to send it to even though we aren't married.
