Basic Training.

My boyfriend leves for boot camp in October, I am in college right now so we don't really get to see each other now and it is killing me because I know I am not going to be able to see him while he is at boot camp Also he told me he is scared and I can see it in his eyes that he is terrified, are there any tips anyone has that I can do to help comfort him and show him my support? . Also does anyone have any advice for me on how to handle when he is at boot camp? Thank you

okay this is going to be hard. i mean that in the best way possible if that makes any sense. Before my boyfriend left he gave me his high school dog tags. i wore them every day, especially in front of him. i was always asking him questions about the army and basic training and SMILING about it!! although i wanted to cry inside. he saw that with all my questions i was trying to understand what he wanted to do in life. make sure when he leaves you guys say "see you later" instead of "goodbye" why? because your kinda ensuring him that when he comes back he will be coming back to YOU. tell him that your counting the days till you see his amazing smile again. that you'll write everyday even if you dont have his address yet. start writing now if you want :) make sure he is always updated through letters. always say i love you because for a while they wont be able to hear it. those three words will mean so much more especially when hes gone. handling things is the hardest thing ever! writing will not only help him but help you also :) ive learned that. always remind yourself that hes coming home soon. days will either feel like forever but if you keep yourself busy it will pass by fast. good luck sweetheart :) btw where's he going to be stationed?
