I am fairly new to the military experience. My boyfriend left in April, and I will be going to Illinois next Friday for the graduation. Boot camp has been an experience to say the least. Towards the end he stopped receiving any of my mail. However, yesterday he got " Recruit Heaven" and I got to talk to him for 10 minutes. I am very nervous to see him and don't really know what to expect next in this process. All of my friends think I am stupid for loving some one that is never going to be home. I guess they just don't understand. His rate is an HM ( corpsman). If anybody has any advice or insight into this process I greatly appreciate it.
