I Am So Worried About His First Deployment.

Hey everyonee! My name is Angela and my Marine is named Dan. We're both 18 and we're both turning 19 this summer. I am a month older then him :) Our 1 year and 5 months was the past Saturday! He was home for 15 days, which was the best 15 days evers! He finally had to go back to camp today and it was the hardest thing in the world. Saying goodbye again. He's been in the corps for almost a year and I just don't now how I even got through it. We went to the same high school for 4 years and was in the same class for 3 years. I always knew him as the trouble maker and mr. hotty. My best friend had the biggest crush on him and I knew to stay away from him. I got out a 3 year relationship and he asked me hang out. Random out of all the guys in my high school I would never have thought he would ask me to chill. After a month of chillen, he finally asked me out and said that he knew that I was the one. I knew he was joining the marines and everyday he made sure that I knew what I was getting myself into. Now our relationship couldn't be any better! Even though we had a few bumpy roads, but we made it all work in the end. He asked me to move in with him for a few times, but I have to finish college first. He will be deploying for Afghanistan in two weeks and I have all these thought going through my head. I just don't know what I would do without him for 7 months! I can't even go a day without him calling me. His parents keep telling me that he may have a computer and he keeps telling me other wise. I just don't know how to come about this or even know what to do.

Hey girl, just know that emotions will run high, and everything may seem crazy and out of controll. But if you keep your eyes on the goal- loving and supporting each other and getting to the end of it all, you'll come out stronger than you could have imagined. Deployments are really hard on couples because you go through such a wide range of emotions, but if you continue to love each other through it all, you'll be amazed at how far yall have come in the end! :)

hey hun. my man dan also is a marine he is in afghistan for 6 more months and i didnt think i could get threw it either but you can it is possible. it is hard but as long as you know that he is thinking about you and calling you when he can youll be fine. my man has been over there for a months so far and we are doing great. ive always been threw this before with a different guy. so if you need to talk i am here ;)
