Navy Girlfriend/new Member

Hello all, my boyfriend and I have been dating for about 7 months, however we grew up together and I have known him my entire life. We just started dating in june, but we have liked each other for about 5 years. It wasn't until June that we shared this with each other and since then we have been inseparable. We have already talked about getting married and know we want to spend the rest of our lives together. My boyfriend left for boot camp 3 almost 4 weeks ago and we have been writing back and forth. I just got his letters this past week. I miss him terribly and he feels the same. I am freaking out about trying to plan my trip to Chicago for his boot camp graduation. No idea how long he will even have after graduation. Some sailors ship out to A school that day and some get a little time off, all depending on when their A school starts. If anyone has any insight on this I would greatly appreciate it.

When my boyfriend graduated he had like 7 hours with family before he had to check back in for the night. He shipped out to sc at 1 the next morning. What program is he in? Do you know where he will be after graduation?

Right now he was appointed recruit chief petty officer, I know that's probably just for boot camp but he is going to be a Seabee so he will be going to California, I asked him last week via letter how much time we might have but I also know some sailors won't know until gradation. I am worried that I will plan for the weekend and book a hotel and flight and then he will leave that day, leaving me with cancellation fees, and I will be all alone in Chicago.
