Question New, Army National Guardsmen's Fiance. Questions/Concerns/Advice/Stores?!

Hello all, my name is Jessica. I am not sure if I am right to be a member of this Community, Iím not sure if it would be right of me to join or not but I just had some questions, concerns about your Military men/women going to Iraq & stuff. I just want to know, what are the hardest parts? What do you do to get yourself through the days when you really miss him? Just any and all info anyone would like to share.

Also for Introduction info, I'm 23/f from Indiana. My Birthda is in August, send presents haha. I met my Guardsmen a year ago last May, we were kind of dating through out the year not anything official, until February 2008. I am a Caregiver to a relative of mine which is how I make my money. I'm a big fan of concerts, live music, road trips, Walt Disney World (Florida), animation and cartoons. This is my first & last (as we will be getting married haha) Military Relastionship.

I am engaged to a Army National Guardsmen, I was not dating him when he was in training etc., he was dating someone else at that time. That was about a year or two ago he joined. So I never had to go through any of that kind of stuff. Recently we were talking about how sometimes he thinks about volunteering to go to Iraq. But he didnít want to because he would miss his friends & me way to much because it was difficult enough when he was in training, he doesnít want to be gone for so long. Anyways, he asked me what I thought & I told him it was ultimately up to him what he wanted to do, which shocked him because no one had ever told him before that it was his decision, it was mostly about others feelings, not his. Anyways, long story short, he said he would think about it & if he was deciding on going he would talk to me about it first & we would decide together.

So I guess my reason for writing this is to just get an idea of what he & I might be going through if he did decide to go. I know a lot of nothing about this military stuff, would never do it but give crazy props to those who are amazing enough to do it. I guess I just need different points of view as to how I should think about everything etc. I don't want the only thing for me to be thinking is "OMG WHAT AM I GOING TO DO WITHOUT HIM!?!?!?!" kind of junk haha. I have so much to leanr. Thank you so much if anyone is willing to share some stories/info. God Bless all you wonderful women who have crazy brave Soldiers!

♥ Jessica 23/f/Indiana
