    I am in a relationship with a male who is in boot camp, he was suppose to graduate on the 6th, and I was suppose to travel to Canada to be there for his graduation on the 6th, I just found out on Saturday, that he did not pass his final swimming test, so he wont be graduating on that date, I am having a hard time dealing with this for two reasons I made arrangements for that date, there is no way I can come up for a graduation on a later date and also I do now know when I am going to see him. If anyone can help me with this I would greatly appreciate this, I do not want this to destroy our relationship!

    I am Acive Duty uscg and my wife is currently in bootcamp, Believe me we have had to be apart but if you love him and he loves you it will all work out, Bootcamp is just 1 of many graduations you will get to go to, Believe me my wife couldnt make it to my graduation it wasnt too big of a deal it was worth the wait.He will experience far greater accomplishments in the future you can attend like A-school Advancements awards etc. Bootcamp is just step 1, Im sure he will understand, I did i bet all he wants to do is to graduate and leave, bootcamp in Canada? Is he in the canadian CG?

    If you mistakenly put canada and was going to put cape may nj, then your husband will go threw remedial swim which will help him pass almost EVERYONE passes after that, i had buddies that i taught to swim in bootcamp during remedial swim. Was he going to graduate may or june 6th? Also write him letting him know you are there for him, dont be negative that is the last thing he needs ,tell him that you will try and be there for his future accomplishments etc. Just stay positive that is the most important thing, at least he is in the last process of the Coastguard one of the most rewarding jobs in the world, i know that MANY people try and get into the coastguard and Fail. He is blessed and so are you. This wont destroy your relationship Stay busy and positive.

    Thanks for your reply to start off that is amazing that both you and your wife are both going to be in the coast guards i wish you two the best!
     I'm glad to know that there will be other events I will be able to attend, I also worried about when he is actually going to be able to graduate since he wasn't able to pass the final swimming test. He is in the US coast guards, I live in Canada so we are also in a long distance relationship.

    Yes I ment to say travel from Canada sorry about that, he didn't know how to swim before hand so I know it was going to be very difficult for him, he was suppose to graduate on May 6th. I have been writing, and i will continue to do so, that is the only thing that is keeping me sane while he has been away.

    its only a matter of a few days! he should get on base liberty this week and able to call you then off base liberty, He could be pushed back further to x 184 grad may 20th Is there any way you could make may 20th because he could be pushed back a week or more. but you all are almost done!

    Yes he was in Victor 184, thanks for the link, I will try to make it but I have booked off time for work and school to make it on May 6th plus I do not have the money to spend on another bus ticket, I did really want to be there for him though. Also he is stationed in Maine.

    Well if your in Eastern canada then that is a great station for him to get to see you. I dont know for sure but he might get different orders getting reverted. so dont make any plans for main Just yet.

    Another way to possibly get in contact with him is email him this is the format

    Firstname.Middle Initial.Last Name@uscg.mil

    I emailed my wife etc during the final weeks and it was faster than snail mail.

    so this is what it looks like

    John.Q.Doe@uscg.mil

    You aren't really allowed to email... he has an email and he gets that vry near the end of boot camp. It is to communicate with his unit & sponsor. You can email him at his military email after boot camp but that isn't truly supposed to be released until he gets out of boot camp. Also, those emails may or may not be monitored. Like any business today, the email doesn't belong to you, it belongs to your employer, in this case the federal government. Watch what you say just as you would watch what you say in a written letter to your recruit.

    Don't worry that you have already sent an email.  Just keep them to a minimum and keep them professional.

    I don't know your whole situation, however I know that if the bus company has any available seats on the day in question, they might be willing to swap the tickets for you. There's always somebody on call that wants that seat ya know. Just be friendly and polite. You might be just get it.

    Always happy to help. Same thing happens when you miss a flight FYI. I missed my plane from Denver to Mia and they gave me a seat on the next available, no charge. That was with non-refundable tickets. So ya, like i said, explain, be polite and nice and you'll see how far you can get in life.
