He's Academy Bound...

I just recently (today) found out that my boyfriend of almost a year has been accepted to the USAFA and will be leaving for basic in four months. When he first told me, I was so ecstatic; this has been his dream since he was 12 years old. However, I'm terrified that we will grow apart or that he'll find a better girl in Colorado. I wanted this for him, and it would have broken my heart to see him hurt, but I am going to miss him so so much. He is the love of my life. We're both 18 now, and we plan on getting married when we both graduate college in 4 years. I guess I'm just going to have to deal on my own.

Congrats to him! My boyfriend is about to finish up his first year at USAFA. While he's at BCT, write him letters as often as you can and he may not be able to write you everyday; with the lack of free time they have. Letters will help him get through all the hell. He'll be able to call you about three/four weeks into BCT during Doolie Day In and maybe a couple of times after. If you two really want to be together than it will work out. There are a few guys in his squadron that are still dating their sweethearts. My boyfriend and I are both from Colorado and it was extremely tough when I couldn't talk to him. Plan on making a trip out to see him during parents weekend (Labor Day weekend) and get a ticket to a football game.

spend as much time as you can with him before he's gone!!
