My boyfriend and I have been dating for a year. He plans to leave for OCS on May 31. I have no idea anything about the Marines. I know it is 10 weeks of only writing letters but where does it go after that? He goes to training. He wants to be an officer in the reserves. I have no idea anything about this and he keeps trying to tell me things to make me feel better but not the truth. Can someone please explain the process?!? When can he come home to visit and for good. When he is out of basic can he have visitors whenever at his next training? Help someone please! I need reassurance. I love him so much and want to make it work but I need more details.

Girl... I feel you... My sweetie left in March for Marine bootcamp...I am sad! Real sad... already I have recieved 3 letters.... I know that after graduation he comes home for ten days... but I am not sure whats going to happen after that. I feel your pain!! This is the hardest thing that I have ever done! My friend is married to a marine and she said just write as much as possible... He'll love your letters!? When's your guy graduating? Are you going?
