I Wear His Tags Proudly

My boyfriend and I have been dating for about two months.  I'm a freshman in college and he has been on three Iraq tours and has found me with many scars that make me proud to say "I'm a soldier's girl."  I stayed with his family while he had drill and realized how proud I was of him. Over that weekend he told me he would be going to Afganistan in Feb. of 2011.  Initially, I paid no mind to it because we'd only been dating a few weeks and I really didn't see our relationship lasting that long.  A few weeks later he told me that he had to report in Sept. of 2010 and as it approaches I find myself more terrified of him leaving.  He loves the movie "The Hurt Locker" because that is what he does.  Always wanting me included in what he does he has been asking for weeks to watch it with him.  A few days ago I finally caved.  Within the first 30 minutes or so there are a few casualties, and him telling me things like that happen a lot.  Of course, scaring me more.  He told me he wanted to either breakup or get engaged before he left.  If we were engaged and he never came back, I have no idea what I'd do.  When he told me he'd rather breakup than be engaged, for my sake, I was nearly relieved.  I'll relish every moment I have with him now., wear his tags proudly, and pray I'll wear BOTH again next October.
