Girlfriend of a Marine

Well lets start with the fact that my name is Kariane.  I am 16 years old and have been with Michael for about 8 months now.  He is 19 and in bootcamp right now until April 3rd!  I cant wait until he comes home.  He has been my best friend for 10 years and he is the only person who knows me better than I know myself.  It is difficult not having him to talk to.  We spent a lot of time together before he left talking about everything but I am still worried.  We are still young and I dont want this to tear us apart.  He is very extreme, basically why he joined, and that scares me because I dont want to lose him!  I know we are still young and have a long life to live, hopefully together.  When he is finished with bootcamp he will be going for infantry training.  He wants to fight in Iraq which is very scary for me.  I think I am more scared for him than he is!

If anyone has any advice for me that would be greatly appreciated!  None of my friends or family have ever gone through anything like this before so its all new!
