    Hi everyone, I'm new!

    Hi everyone,

    This is my first day on here, it was recommended to me as being somewhere good to chat with other people in similar situations, so I thought I'd take the plunge and introduce myself!

    My boyfriend of 7 months commissioned from Sandhurst in April and is about to go out on attachment to Iraq on Thursday... so it'll be his first posting and my first long period without him. This is why I thought it'd be a good time to come on here as I don't really know what to expect, and I don't think he does either

    So any advice greatly appreciated. I'm obviously worried and I'll miss him but I'm fully supportive of him and I know he didn't join the army to sit behind a desk so I just have to bear with it. Also, in my view it's best to try your best not to worry about things you can't do anything about.

    Looking forward to meeting everyone

    Hello C_S_M!

    Welcome to Rear Party - kick off your shoes, grab a drink and as bossy says, browse the forums. With our growing number of members (that you can help add to by giving the site details out to your friends!) there's probably at least one person on here going through the same thing as you...

    To start you off, take a peek at these threads:

    1st deployment

    what to do with myself?

    Some inspiration required please...!

    Some support / advice / a way to cope?

    Missing my man!!

    Get stuck in posting and see if you can get your boyfriend to add the www.rearparty.co.uk address to any pre- and post-deployment unit hand-outs because the more that those left behind realise that they're not alone and that they have somewhere to come to vent their feelings and be cheered up, the better...

    Dozy

    Edited for repetition: d'oh!
    Holy Cow!

    Life is not the amount of breaths you take, it's the moments that take your breath away.

    Thanks Dozy, that's really helpful. I'll have a browse through those threads. Don't think I'll be getting any work done at this rate and I probably won't get a minute to miss my man either!

    Hi C_S_M

    I joined this site today. My bf's in Iraq for 6 months, he went on 2 May. He emails most days and rings every few days, so at least that's something. Looking forward to chatting to you. x

    Re: Hi everyone, I'm new!

    Hello CSM & Munki, welcome to the rear party, Dozy has given some great advice. The great thing about this site is that there is a wide range of experience at your fingertips all you have to do is browse through the site and if you don't see it ask. A great bunch of friendly gals here who are all willing to help you out and if one or two of them are near you all the better as you have a great support network here.
    So pull up a seat, pour a glass of your favourite tipple and settle down for a long chat.
    Talk to you soon !!!!
