I heard from him this morning :) i’m gonna have a lot of trouble with this whole 9 hours ahead thing but i’m going to make the best of it <3 they haven’t reached their destination just yet, they have one more flight tomorrow morning. I heard from a bunch of people that the wifi is really good in the barracks so hopefully we’ll be able to Skype or at least talk to each other tomorrow <3 I also found something really adorable last night while I was going through his stuff: this is the bible that he was issued at boot camp last year in June. He wrote out a prayer that says: “we do what were told, the pain is physical, but bearable. The emotional pain is damn near UNBEARABLE, i want to fall to my knees and cry, I won’t, I miss my loved ones so much, God, please give me the strength to make it through this, on time and fast with courage and heart. I will not quit! will fucking not! Please protect me from sickness, illness, hurt, injury, and sorrow, amen. And God, I love her and I wanna be with her forever, put her in my arms.” I started balling immediately after reading this <3
