My Boyfriend Was Just Hired On To A Department 1300 Miles Away!

I have been with my boyfriend for over a year now.  I have been by his side from his initial interest in becoming a firefighter, through the application process, the CPAT, and interview process.  I have tried to be 100% supportive towards him about the whole experience, which I am not going to lie was sometimes difficult, because I know how important it is to him.  I am very honored to be with someone that is willing to put their life on the line every day to help others. The first department he applied for is the Dallas Fire and Rescue.  Needless to say he did really well and was placed on the list at 136, which is such an accomplishment in itself.  He just got the call yesterday and was notified that he's starting the academy December 7th.  I am so proud of him, however I am currently in school where we live.  We live together and have been living together for just over 6 months.  He asked me if this was a lifestyle that I could see myself in and would it align with my goals.  He wants me to be informed about what this lifestyle includes.  I am worried that maybe he doesn't want this to work out or doesn't think that we are going to be happy.  He seems to change his mind about whether I should move with him or not.  I want to prove to him that I can handle this because I love this man more than anything!  I know it's not going to be easy, but I am willing to make sacrifices to make it work.  The plan right now is to finish my semester and then hopefully transfer down there and continue school at a local university.  I could really use any advice anyone has about this topic as I am still trying to wrap my brain about only having 30 days left with him:(  I just want him to realize that I want what's best for him and I hope that he appreciates my support.
