Dont worry! I'm sure if he was just deployed hes fine and it may take awhile to hear from him. Luckily mine has a blackberry where we have had a few messages back and forth through facebook, but still it takes awhile for him to answer. He was to deployed to okinawa japan a few weeks ago and now he is getting ready to go to Afghanistan as well. Stay strong :)

zack has been gone for a month and i didnt hear from him for almost 2 weeks. other than an email that said im here.

Second that. The travel takes a long time, and even when there, he'll likely be very busy and he probably won't be able to talk with you every day. There may even be weeks where you don't hear from him at all. <br />

That said, rest assured, what gonnabemrsG said was true. If something happened to him, you'll be the first to know. Sometimes no news is good news. Try to take care of yourself. If you need to talk, I'm here for you.

Just calm down :) I know it sounds hard, but that's what you need to do, sometimes it takes a little while, it took my boyfriend about a week just in transport, and too depending on the FOB he is there could be like 2 phones for 400+ soldiers to share. 1 idea if you want to talk to him more is send him a cell phone, but it has to be an international phone like a Blackberry Tour or BB Bold. It gets expensive, very expensive, but it's worth it for us.<br />

But just calm down, if something was wrong you would be notified.
