There are a multitude of Facebook groups, including one generally for the individual companies. You can always chat here and ask questions, we are a pretty supportive group. Keep in mind, it is just 8 weeks. The days will drag by but the weeks will fly. Your boyfriend will likely participate in Operation Fireside. So you will probably get phone calls from him on Christmas. That will be week 4, the following week he will get his orders that's another phone call. Then it is week 6, on base liberty, calls again. Week 7, off base liberty, calls.
Then that Friday is graduation, January 24th. It will really go by pretty quickly.
Any questions, just go ahead and throw them out there. We have so many people with such a great variety of knowledge. You can always PM myself or a few of the other regulars if a question seems personal or something you might not want to broadcast. Again, always happy to help. Congratulations on your boyfriend shipping out. One piece of advice as far as letter writing, write every day if you like. Don't expect letter for letter to be returned, they don't have that sort of time. In your letters, sure tell him you love him and miss him, that's ok. But don't drag it out that you are miserable and crying every day... That really won't be helpful to either of you. Sometimes we mean well by sharing our days and emotions but it hurts to think you might be making the other person so miserable.
Hang in there, it will be just fine. If you need anything, let us know.
