"My boyfriend is currently in San Diego at Camp Pendleton. He said he wouldn't be picked up till April 30th. Does anyone else have a Marine who is in this situation. He graduated earlier in March, and was in Kilo Company 3233."

Thanks for letting me join, and I can't wait to chat and get to know all you gals :)

Christine, I see you're from the Lake area. Just as an aside, next Saturday (20th), a number of us are getting together in Columbia to ship care packages to deployed troops. We do this 4 times a year. You would be more than welcome to join us, and you would find a number of people who could relate to what you are feeling. Here is a link to our Care Package Project site for more information.
