    Whoever said it gets easier,

    it doesn't. Saying goodbye this time has been so much harder than the first time. He's now back at Ft Benning for AIT. Don't get me wrong, the first time he left it was hard but we had holiday leave to look forward to. We knew exactly when we'd see each other again. This time...
