Found Out When He Leaves For Basic...

We just found out last night from his recruiter that he will be leaving October 30th to basic training. I am not going to put where he is going for safety reasons but it is thousands of miles away from me and I can't help but be sad. We have almost 5 months left together and then he leaves for 12 1/2 weeks he said. He was guaranteed that he gets to come home for Christmas so hopefully that will come soon. I am happy that we have 5 months left to enjoy each other but I am so sad to know that he will be leaving days before my 18th birthday and our 10 month anniversary. Hopefully when he leaves I will get letters soon.

The days are gonna go flying trust me I know so spend as much time as you can together. As the day comes closer the stronger you have to be for him and yourself. Now, all you can do is hope for the best and think positive. I understand how you feel about him missing out on your anniversary. My boyfriend leaves September, but he will leave again in November for is AIT ,so his not going to be here for holidays nor our two year anniversary, so I understand. It sucks.. Best of luck!! I know you can do it :)

Yes it is very tough but thank you for the support. If you need anything as well let me know.
