Got Some GOOD News Today!

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I almost forgot to tell everyone my good news!

My boyfriend, who I've been with for the past year, told me a couple of months ago, that his unit was going to be deployed to the Middle East sometime after the first of the year. He said they would get their official orders during January drill. So we've both been trying to prepare for it mentally....but it's been very hard thinking that he would be leaving and I wouldn't see him at all for over a year. He had just gotten back from the Middle East last year, shortly before we began dating.

Well today, he called me on the way home from drill and I asked, "So what's the deal? Did you find out when you're leaving and where you're going?" He said that the "official" word is that his unit will NOT be activated until 2007-2008 and then it would most likely be a "Homeland Security" assignment....meaning that he would not have to go overseas to the war!

So as of right now.......he doesn't have to go! I'm so excited! I realize that things could change and he still may have to go.....but for the moment....he's staying home.

Thanks everyone. It is definitely wonderful news! When he first told me back in November, he thought he would be going to Afghanastan most likely...and would be gone for 2 years. I cried for two days and then everytime I thought about it after that. Then he found out in December that they were shortening the tours and he would only be gone for a year. Still hard....but I felt I could deal with that better.

Now he doesn't have to go at all!
