I am new to the boards and just wanted to say hello. My boyfriend is an infantry SSG and we are in our first Iraq deployment (his second) together. It has been over two months and we are so far doing really well, I think partially because we had been able to email and IM a lot. Now the time between communication is getting longer and longer but I am trying to be strong. I had a minor freak out after it had been almost two weeks but we finally got to talk yesterday. I am coming to an end to college so luckily I am able to keep my mind busy at times but I still worry so very much about him. I have made myself a few goals (training for a marathon, violin and salsa lessons, a stack of books to read) to pass the year but still find my mind on him constantly. I just wanted to have a spot to speak with others and know that I am not alone at home while my heart is so far away. Thanks for having a group like this.
