Got To Hear His Voice Last Night For The Last Time For A While...

Yeah my baby boy just went for basic in KY like.. 2 weeks ago and has been in the transition to actual bootcaMP.. HE JUST STARTED THIS MORNING AT 4:30 AM THOUGH. so im sad that he had to be gone those extra 2 weeks for nothing :( but.. oh well.. i got to hear his voice and talk to him for 15 minutes last night and i was surprised i didnt start bawling.. but i tried to stay strong for him.. i almost broke down when he told me how much he just wanted to come back home and how he hated it and how miserable he was and wished he just listened to me and never joined.. it breaks my heart that he is going  into it with that kinda emotion and he is stuck in it for 3 years :(... at least its only 3 years though...

I've already written 3 letters... I'm starting to write every single day so he will definitely never run out of reading material lmao. he has never really been much of a reader or writer though so im worried that he wont write back a lot.. especially cuz he only gets an hour a night to write and he has so much family and friends that ive encouraged to write to him. I really hope i at least get a few decent letters.. I told him I better at least get a full page when he rights back.. he agreed with a little bit of objection haha.. he really does hate writing.. im hoping that not having any other way of communication will encourage him to write more. I tried to explain that its kind of like texting without an instant response. ..... but as much as i joke around.. i miss him too much for any words to describe.. I've had dreams about him the last 3 nights straight that have been so realistic that when i wake up I expect to have my head on his chest and i look around my empty room and cry. it sucks. I hope i start getting a little more used to it soon... :(

I remember the first call I got from my bf in basic. He said he hated it and wished he had never gone and was so sorry for leaving me. He doesn't hate it anymore. Once your bf gets through basic he will probably feel like he can do anything. I used to have the most vivid terrifying dreams about him though. What I'm saying is that this is all very natural, so don't be scared. I was scared my boyfriend would come back as a completely different person, but nope! By the way, just a technicality, but army training is called basic training or basic combat training (BCT) and marine training is bootcamp. It's all the same to us, but the soldiers will correct you. Hope your days get a little easier. Be sure to post pics of your tat when you get it =)

Thanks guys... I'm actually really excited.. tony is going in to the army to train to be a tanker... so at least he will be surrounded by a giant bulletproof surrounding!!! so... I drew up a new tattoo ( cuz i have a bit of an obsession) and i'm getting it in 2 weeks... Its a tank with his initials and stars ... im thinking of adding a little more to it and its either going on my ankle... shoulder blade... or lower hip...<br />
<br />
I hate people who say things about getting name tattoos but honestly i've known him since I started middle school and we have been best friends since the beginning of hs and we're pretty much head over heels for eachother and always have been... so idc.. if anything it stands for the strength he has to have and the strength im going to have to have to help him get through this and wait here at home. <br />
<br />
its pretty tough looking though :) haha all my guy friends are like.. "whoooaa thats bad ***" lmao.. oh boys... haha. <br />
<br />
sTILL CANT WAIT FOR HIM TO COME HOME... but its a nice reminder of him and why im waiting and staying so strong everyday.

thank you for posting this, My boyfriend cuz to basic in less then a month and I'm scared i dont know what it is going to be like, and when people like youself post these stories it helps so i know whats to come, and that atleast i will get talk to him some. Be strong girl.

YAY for him calling! :)<br />

Try and not get to upset girly, my boyfriend hated basic in the beginning as well but when he graduated he LOVED it. <3 He was glad to be done, but he really enjoyed his time there.<br />
<br />
I am sure he will write more than you think. :) I was surprised, when Bryan was in BCT he wrote me just about every day! Feel free to message me anytime if you need anything girly!
