So many questions
My marine and I just got engaged. He is at MOS school right not and will be leaving the school he is currently at in 6-8 weeks and continuing on to "C" school for another three to four month training period, then it's off to his three year station. We want to move in together as soon as possible, when is the best time to get married? Would I be allowed to live with him at C school? or will I have to wait until he is stationed in the fleet? Also since I am also attending college, when I chose to move in with him, will I receive in state tuition even though I have not yet established residency? Does the military cover some of my tuition cost?

I'm sorry for all the questions but it's so hard to acquire any information, I found this blog and hope that someone knows a lot more than I do.

Thank you!

Confused teenager.
  I'm sixteen and my boyfriend is seventeen. He's going into boot camp in September. I am so incredibly nervous.

Can anyone tell me what the experience is like? Everyone thinks I'm crazy for believing that we can still work.

hello there community
 hey there i have not been a part of live journal for very long and i figured i would need to find others like myself to post to and try to find somewhat of a friend in this point in my life. 
i graduated high school in may and also on my graduation night got engaged to the guy that i have dated since december 23rd and he decided to join the marine corps.
i have been climbing the walls waiting for him to get home from basic and realizing that i love him more and more with each letter i recieve and each phone call i get.
i have never had someone treat me so good and look at me like he worships the ground i walk on. i dont think he realizes that i worship him almost. 

well i just wanted to post and basically say hello to the community and kinda let everyone know who i am in a short post.

*Stockings for Troops*
Hello everyone,
My cousin, Cpl. Kelly Williams, just got back from Iraq with the Marines, but her husband and a bunch of close friends are still out there. For Christmas, my cousin Emily and I are making stockings for the 22 members of her platoon.
Here are some of the things we plan to include:
* Cookies
* Candy
* Hand-painted miniature picture frames
* Books and puzzles (Sudoku, Mad Libs, joke books, word searches, etc)
* Stationery and supplies to write home
* Individualized letters from 3rd graders
* Sanitary products
* And a bunch of other miscellaneous toys and games to help pass the time
* Holiday movies, such as The Santa Clause, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, A Charlie Brown Christmas, A Christmas Story, etc.

However, it has taken much more money than we anticipated and my funds are just about out. I really don't want to abandon the idea, so I am hoping that anyone who reads this may have a few extra dollars. It doesn't have to be much, but anything, even $1, would help!

If you can't, I completely understand. But if you can spare a little extra let me know!
You can e-mail me at nennerfree@aol.com with any questions.
I also have a Paypal account set up if you would prefer to do it that way. I think all you need is my e-mail address, which again, is nennerfree@aol.com

Thank you in advance to any who can help!

I didnt know that him leaving would hurt this bad & be so hard. I miss him so much already. I know that everyone says its going to get better but at this point right now I just dont see how it could.

He was supposed to leave at 7:30am but now they arent leaving till 12. He called me before like 6:30 this morning, & we talked for a little bit. We talked like the whole night. I got 3 hours of sleep or so. But we texted eachother after we said our goodbyes & that was it. Till a half n hour later he texted me back saying we arent leaving till 12. Which is good & bad I get to talk to him more, but I have to say goodbye all over again.

I wanna stop crying but it just keeps coming. Its going to be a long 7 months.

Military discount at Cingular (x-post)
My husband and I went in to renew our Cingular contract the other day and the girl goes, "Do you guys know about the military discount?" Uh, no.... "Well you get 20% off your bill." Sweet! Why haven't we heard about this before?

So anyhoo, I thought I'd spread the good word.

Guess I gotta take my dress back...
Well, it looks like I won't be making it to the Marine Corps ball this year. :( Aaron's getting activated a little earlier than expected to train for his upcoming deployment. So sad. On the plus side, he's excited cuz he gets to be a fire team leader. ^_^ And hey, saves us both a bit of cash. Still, I've looking forward to the ball since last year. Oh well.
