Off To Boot Camp He Goes..

so today my boyfriend or should i say fiance went off to boot camp.it turns out that i actually got to surprise him at MEPS today and see him get sworn in.it was such an emotional time. but i am so glad i got to see him. he actually proposed to me on saturday night. it was the happiest night of my life. and then seeing him today just made me feel so much better that he was doing the right thing.and he also looked so mature.

Welcome to the circle! My name is Wina, I'm 24, and me & my fiance have been together for a little over 5 years now. My advice is to try to get in touch with your bf's recruiter, they might be able to give you his address sooner rather than waiting for him to write you so you can start sending your letters early. That's what I did anyway. It was a nice surprise for my fiance since he got my letters a week early and was one of the very few the first ones in his division to get letters during the first letter call ;) (I guess some people pester their recruit's recruiters also to get the address early lol)<br />
Yes, joining the Navy is a really good way to pave your future together and he will definitely be even more mature by the time he is done with boot camp :) Good luck!

i remember that. i waited around all day at MEPS to see him get sworn in the day he left and it was VERY emotional, he wouldnt look at me at first because i was crying....but when he asked if i would be waiting for him it made everything so much better! congrats on the engagement. the first few weeks will be the hardest but when you get his first letter or call, everything will seem a milliontimes beter!
