    newbie getting ready for my first tour

    Hi everyone,
    Been dating my lovely boy for almost 2 years, and he's getting ready to go to Iraq in a few days.

    Its his 3rd tour but my first and i'm a hopeless newbie! Never been through this before, no family in the army, and I don't know any other army wags.

    i saw the helpful thread on getting info in an emergency, but i was hoping more for advice on the day-to-day: how do you keep in touch, and what would be helpful/appreciated that i can do for/send to my man from my end (i can bake!).

    any pointers gratefully received, and as i'm sure the regulars get these same questions a million times, if you can point me to an existing thread that would also be great!

    Hi medpo, keeping in touch you can use e-blueys or just writing normal letters plus occasional phone calls and if you can both get internet access emails/msn. But am sure theres a thread on this stuff somewhere around.
