I Need Advice/

Ive been dating my childhood friend for almost 7? months now. Ive known him since I was 12 or 13 and when we recconected he said he was in the Guard. He was supposed to be deployed to Iraq this month but they cancelled his troop. He recently left me a distraught note that said "I dont want to put you through that kind of life if I do get deployed" He still has 4 years left, and I just want to let him know that im here, and im not going anywhere and I understand this whole situation. Ive reeassured him before but maybe I wasnt reassuring enough. Any tips?

Just continue to reassure him. Let him know that's he's important enough to you that you will get through it if he is deployed. It would hurt more to go through a break up and deployment than it would to endure a long separation because of his deployment. Remind him that you're there for him and you're not going anywhere. Let him know you support him and you'll be there when he comes back.
