Anyone's DH go through AF Basic Training?

Just wondering. My DH just left this week for 8 1/2 weeks of Basic and another 8-10 weeks of tech school for the Air Force. We did not have much time to prepare for his leave so I feel very lost at the moment. I would love any support I can get. We have 2 girls ages 2 & 1.

  • My husband left for Navy basic last June. He made it home in time for the holidays. We had two weeks between sign up and his departure. It was stressful, but we made it.

  • My DH went for AF Basic in 08 back before it bumped up to the 8 1/2 weeks. It sucked, the random calls he could make and everything else. But it went pretty quickly. The hardest part was my son. He missed his daddy so much. We would mess with photos of daddy, he'd talk on the calls I could actually answer, and although he was so little he loved the letters daddy would send. Just got to be sure to keep daddy on the mind if they are young. GL
