I am a proud Navy girlfriend! We started dating January 26, 2011 I knew well before we got involved that he was going into the navy just didn't know it would be this hard!! My bf's rate in the navy is HM ( Hospital corpsman) he wants to be FMF (with marines) :P I didn't know what to think at first, he does still have time to change his mind though i dont think he will. I just told him whatever he does im behind him 110% and will be waiting for whenever he comes home!!! He will be in the Navy a minimum of 5 years, i guess if you're a corpsman they tack on another 12 months active duty. After that who knows he may re-enlist, he may not, whatever he decides im there for him! Right now im focused on getting "US" through boot camp and then A school and then possibly FMTB?? (hope i have that right) If anyone has any suggestions, thoughts, similar situations dont be afraid to ask or tell!!! Im soaking all of this in!!
BF's ship date 3/22
PIR date 5/20
Ship 07/Division 173!!!! HOOYAH!!!
Just got back from PIR and NOW have a SAILOR!!!! I am so proud of him words can not express enough!!! The feeling is unbelievable! He left for A school the next morning and is now in Texas for 3 1/2 months!! it will be another struggle but we have skype, texting, and phone calls :D plus im going to be able to visit him!!! sooo much better already then boot camp! :D
