So the question is - who is going to get to share their news first? Sounds like this could be an exciting two weeks for you!

Congrats to you! I hope the two weeks go by fast for you! I'm patiently waiting for mine to come home. It feels like he's been underway forever. It hasn't been as bad as I thought it would be. I'm just used to him being home. It's empty without him. Luckily I've had a lot of support from my family and friends. I feel blessed to not only have the best man in my life but to have a good support system.

Is that his plan, too? My son & his girl are nowhere close to having a child, she is just graduating college in May and they want to wait at least 5 years so she can start her career. But she already has names picked out and my son shot those down and has his favorites picked. She isn't crazy about those. Of course I'm sure their minds will change a hundred times between now & then.

Haha...this is a HUGE issue with my husband and I. He hates all the names I like, and I hate all the names he likes. We're not having a baby any time soon, so this isn't a problem now, but it will be some day!

I wanted Zachary... Zack & Mac from Kodiak. Jimmy shot that down. He wanted James B, IV. Absolutely not, I wanted my son to be his own man, not his father. I suggested Seamus, that is the Gaelic form of James. Nope. He wanted Guy (pronounced Gee hard G), think hockey play Guy LeFleur. NO! I was not naming my son Gee. Girl was easy we agreed on just about every name. We didn't know if we were having a boy or a girl, I didn't want to know. I wanted the surprise! We both sort of liked Geoff. But then one day we said COLIN! That was it. Colin if it was a boy bump, Elise Caroline or Rachel Elizabeth if it was a girl bump. It was a boy... Colin it is!

Zack and Mac from Kodiak - cute!

My husband insists that if we have a son, he will be named Eli Manning.  First name Eli, middle name Manning.  I don't think so!

Meka,
It will be just fine! My coastie and I have been inseperable ever since we started dating. Once he left for boot camp, I didn't even know what to do with myself. I'm sure you've heard the saying, "the days are long, but the weeks go by fast." It's definitely true! My coastie left at the beginning of September, and now we are down to the last 8 days! My advice for you is to spend as much time together as you can now. Have a list of things you want to do with him before he leaves. As nervous as you are for him to leave, imagine how he must feel. Once he leaves, write as much as you can. Don't feel discouraged if he doesn't respond often. Writing letters isn't a major priority to them. Stay busy when he's gone and you will be just fine. I'm here if you have any other concerns!

Hey ladies-

I'm in the same boat missing my Coastie. He is in Zulu 188 and, if all goes well, graduates November 26. I've been counting down the days and sometimes it feel soooo long Some days are easier than others. But it's hard to believe that he is already beginning week 4 tomorrow.

The best advice I have for someone starting out the bootcamp separation is write everyday! I had a couple people tell me that and it has helped a ton! Sometimes I think it helps me more than it helps him. I tell him about my day, things I'm thinking about, jokes, etc. I try to make the letters upbeat but it's helpful to still feel "connected" even if you're the one sending most of the letters. In his last letter to me, he wrote that he really enjoys getting my letters even though he doesn't have much time to write back. He gets them before bed. So- write lots of letters! I write mine at night and think "One more day down" as I write the date on the letter.

Also, I learned that recruits have no time to write! They have some time to themselves on Sundays, but often have to do other things like uniform maintenance or shine their boots. If they are found letter writing when they shouldn't be, they can get revision (held back a couple weeks). I'm just telling you that so you know that it's not your recruit not wanting to write, it's that they miss you like crazy and it kills them not to write more! If you keep that in mind, it helps. Plus, think of all the people that never get to experience the reunions that we will all get to experience when we see them for the first time after being separated for bootcamp! I don't know about you ladies, but I'm hugging my Coastie super tight and giving him a big smooch when I see him

Hope this helps. I understand it does suck. I miss mine terribly right now. Let's use this time to support each other when we are weak.

I wonder the same thing. I just recently dated a coastie and he has to go to VA for military school next month and even though the timing is sucky. I really want this to work out. I talked to him about it and he is as fully committed to this as I am. We both are honest and loyal. I have family in VA and plan to visit him via airplanes and such. Will he be at that school forever and be stationed there for a long time.

It depends on what school he's going to. If he's going to A School he'll be there or a few months and transfer to a new unit. If he's going to C school he'll be there for a few weeks and return to his unit. You should discuss it with him. If you need clarification on what he tells you we can try to help.
