    My boyfriend is going to ALS

    for a month. He'll be about and hour and a half away. We've decided to use this time as a kind of pre-deployment test run. Of course it'll be different when he's gone longer and farther away; but he thinks it will be good practice for me. Does anyone have any suggestions? (Not...

    Hi guys! I was hoping someone could answer my

    question. Do the airmen HAVE to take leave after tech school? He's finishing tech school in April, but we're hoping he can save his leave until May so he can attend my college graduation. I'm really concerned and want for him to be there more than anything :( Please help!

    So I got my first letter a couple of weeks ago.

    It wasn't long but at least I got one. It was so good to hear from him. He graduates on January 17th if he doesn't get recycled. I'm just ready to be in his arms. This is harder than I thought it would be but I can pull through. I can do it if he can❤
