Hi, I’m new to writing on this board and to a military Relationship. My Boyfriend is a Navy reserve, who will be deployed in ten months or so. When he deploys he will be in charge of the medical care for over 150 Marines. I'm so proud of him, serving his country and taking care of soldiers as well as civilians, but the most terrifying thing is that he will be in the most violent part of Afghanistan.
I'm completely clueless when it comes to military life, the only info I know about it is the stuff I see in TV shows and movies. A month before he told me where he was going to be stationed, I watched a documentary about a unit that was stationed in the same area he will be in. It showed them constantly under fire and even the death of an American soldier.
