    I am new to the whole military girlfriend thing

    my boyfriend will be leaving for basic in about one month and all of this is a little overwhelming. I am extremely proud of him, but I have never been in a long distance relationship or a relationship where I haven't been able to at least talk to my man. I know I can write him...

    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!

    It's been 2 weeks since my boyfriend left.

    the days are getting easier but the nights are almost like torcher.i cry almost every night. I'm trying to stay positive, but it's hard to look forward to his graduation day because I don't know it (he left February 24). Is there anything that makes the time apart easier?

    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❤
