I Miss My Military Man

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 410 People

    Hi I was wondering how you all coped

    while your s/o's were away at MCT. It's been two days and not hearing his voice or talking to him is killing me. I feel empty and will do anything to make the time pass faster.

    I miss him so much, it's only been 3 week

    since he went to Alaska for more navy seal training but it feels like an eternity not seeing or talking to him. I honestly don't know what I'm gonna do when he actually deploys for 9 months.
