    Okay so apparently I overheard him.

    He said he would be getting deployed in February 2016! As long as nothing comes up soon, which I hope not! So I definitely should be with him by then. And he was also told today that he will be able to come home for thanksgiving. My spirits are lifted once again! xx

    My boyfriend hasn't brought up marriage anymore.

    But whenever we talk about the future and his next duty station after he comes home from deployment he'll say like "when we move" or "when we find out where our new station will be" I get really excited because I know he still sees me in his plans.
