    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?
