You all have gone through mulitple stages of dealing with your guy being in the military since he signed in. Up until now it has all been talk and “what if” situations, but here you are getting down to the wire.
This is the time where you need to stay calm and prepare yourself. He is leaving and you need to be strong for him. I am not saying that you can’t be sad and that you can’t cry, there is no avoiding that. What I’m saying is you need to be confident in your relationship and know deep down that you can make it through it, that both of you can.
Your guy is more scared than you are and he has every reason to be. He may not show it but trust me, he needs your support more than anything.
Spend more time together and try to give him the best summer he can have, even if it is only a couple of days. He needs to relax and enjoy himself before the real work starts. You are both going to get more nervous about him leaving, and that is going to effect how you talk to each other, but that does not mean that you have to talk about the military every single chance you get.
The week before my guy left we took walks along the creek every day. We sat and talked about how weird it would be when he left and how amazing it will be when its all over. When he left those talks really helped me through a lot, and just recently I found out that it meant more to him than I ever thought. My guy told me just the other day that those simple moments of just being together enjoying each other’s company made him realize how much I meant to him and helped him through his trainin during those moments when he wasn’t able to talk to me.
To sum things up, stay calm and spend time together. Talk to each other about whatever is bothering you so it can be handled before he leaves. You are both tough and you can both make it through this.
