I couldn't really hear him,and he only got like 30 seconds to talk. I don;t know when I will hear from him again. I'm worried.

Any advise?
If he means ELS I would strongly encourage him to stay, tell him that he is doing this to better his future and let him know it will be ok!!
He doesn't love me because I'm beautiful, I'm beautiful because he loves me!!

um all you can pretty much do is stay positive. tell him to stick it out. it'll get better and he should have a positive thought about it. if he's all like "this isn't for me"and" i can't do this" he is telling his mind and his brain he can't do it and won't succeed at it. just happy thoughts

Things will get much better once he gets into his training. He'll be tired, sore & probably be in a fog but then all of a sudden things start to click & he'll realize that he may actually turn out to be a soldier one of these days.

Try to encourage him to stay in & don't ELS. If he does that & gets out he may never forgive himself & he'll always wonder what could have been.
