Hey everyone my name is Kristen and I just started dating a guy named Cody. He will be leaving for basic In October. I'm so nervous. He's going to be gone for 12 weeks. This is the 2nd time I've dated someone in the military. Last time I dated a guy for about 10 months and he was in the Air Force. But I met him right after basic so I only had to go through tech school where we could text and Skype daily so I have no idea what it's like during basic and I'm really nervous about him leaving. And it doesn't help that he's going to be in one of the 2 scariest jobs in the army. So I was just looking for some answers on what I should do before basic. Thanks!
