My best friend leaves for Afghanistan tomorrow. Another good friend leaves for basic in 3 weeks.
Should I let my emotions show or will that make it worse for him? I am so proud of him, and I want him to know it. But I'm afraid if I cry, which I might, that it will make him miss me before he even leaves. Or should I hold my head high? This person means a great deal to me. I'm meeting him for dinner tonight, we will go visit his dad's grave together, and then...he will go.
