I just got a call from my boyfriend who left yesterday for Ft. Benning and had his first day of reception today. He told me that that would probably be the last call for awhile. He also said that he is able to send letters from reception but I won't be able to send a reply. Then he said that he has heard from other soldiers that he will be able to start sending letters pretty frequently once he gets to Basic, too. And I'll be able to send a reply since he has an address there :) However, I know it can be different for each company and whatnot.
Sorry but I don't know anything about that packet either. But I hope I helped a bit. :)

so my boyfriend has been in armor school for the past three months. Its been really hard sometimes but luckily i get to talk to him a few days a week. but he's going to be out on the field starting tomorrow through wednesday so I (obviously) wont be able to talk to him. He texted me last night but i didn't hear my phone so i missed it.
i hate not talking to him and sometimes the distance makes me paranoid and self conscious. i miss him like crazy and i don't know what to do...

so i'm not the only one who gets paranoid!!! thats a relief. i thought i was crazy think that he's gonna change his mind about us while he's gone. i know i'm wrong but sometimes i believe myself and its scary!

My boyfriend left for Ft. Jackson South Carolina about two or three weeks ago.. He was able to call me the first week being in reception and all, but than he started basic so he isn't able to use his phone. I recently got a letter from my brother who is in Ft. Benning Georgia and it doesn't have a return address, but i was wondering how long it'll take to receive a letter from my boyfriend? It's been two weeks already and im a little nervous not hearing from him.

My boyfriend left for fort benning March 5th and we've been together for four years. In the beginning it was really hard, but as time has passed I've realized that this was an opportunity for us to appreciate the time we've spent together. I learn to love him more every day and instead of being sad I am happy in anticipation of seeing him in 36 days. Rather than looking at it as a negative experience look at it as a time to reflect on all of the amazing times you've had together and appreciate every second you spent with each other. Keep you're head up, write as often as you can. stay positive...remember that hearing from you is what keeps him going. I have no doubt in my mind that this will make you're relationship even stronger. This experience is making me a much stronger person and girlfriend and I have never been more proud to be an Army girlfriend. If you ever need to talk feel free to message me.

My boyfriend is currently at Fort Benning for the Ranger Assessment Selection Program (RASP) and will be there for a couple months before he gets his actual unit. Do any of you ladies know if your soldier can communicate with you while he is in this sort of training? He tells me that there is a "Blackout" period where he won't be able to have his phone or anything, but might be able to write letters. If any of you ladies know anything about RASP please let me know!
