Hi, Im new to this site, well actually I havent registered on any other site because ya'lls is the only one so far to stand out and actually give support. I am a 20 yr old woman who has served a mere 1 and a half yrs in the Air force. Im stationed currently at Langley AFB, VA where I met my boyfriend who is a 27 yr old EOD tech who has served 8 years. Just 3 weeks ago he left for his first deployment as an EOD tech, he was a cross trainee. For those who may not know what EOD is, its Explosive Ordinance Disposal, which Im sure many of you have seen The Hurt Locker so you get the basic idea. :) The thing is that I am in an Intelligence career field, so all the super scary stuff that you dont wanna know.. I have to know. Which I truly wish that I didnt have to know to be honest. He is currently at his backfill base in Kuwait, which isnt as high paced. But if any EOD techs get hurt in Afghanistan he is the first out the door to fill that spot.. which being Afghanistan its only a matter of time. Basically I wanted to tell a little bit about myself and maybe get any advice on how to coupe. I dont have children, just a rigirous work schedule.. So on my off days its hard to fill up my day, theres only so many work outs a woman can do. Lol. Thank you ahead of time.. :)
