I Am A New Military Girlfriend, And I Have No Idea How To Handle This.

My boyfriend is in the Navy. He was set to leave for Basic in March. But last week they called him and told him his date was changed to the 29th of this month. :(
He'll be gone for eight months, and i've been trying not to think about it. Cause I don't even want to imagine not being able to see him, or hear his voice for that long. I can't even go to his graduation from basic because it's all the way in Chicago and I live in Tucson.
It would just be nice to have someone to talk to that's going through the same thing, and know what they are doing to help pass the time.

Stay strong...I can't imagine 8 whole months! My bf is in the Army National guard so they only have 4 months of training. I thought that was long! But it compares in no way to how long you have to wait. I'm also sorry that you can't go to his graduation...theres no way you can save up the money and catch a flight?
