Let's get some info....


What branch? Air Force


How long has he been in? 6 years


Were you together before he went in? nope, we met as a result of him being stationed at Tinker, where I work


How many deployments, for how long and where? so far just 1 deployment, to the desert, for 5 months.  The second worst has been SOS which was in Alabama for 5 weeks.


How much longer is he in? who knows?  for the long haul, i guess, but he acknowledges that if family starts suffering he'll be getting out


Do you live in military housing/will you after the wedding?  Nope, we live in a house that he bought a year or so ago.  We may live in temporary base housing when we move somewhere.  (hopefully Germany or Alaska)

I totally understand the distnace thing- we have been long distnace since he graduated from college in 2007- since then we have varied from fairly long distnace (3 hrs- but only for a few weeks), to long distnace (7 hrs), to extremely long distnace (pretty sure you can't drive to Iraq!)


It really stinks, and I just can't wait until we are in the same time zone again!!!!
