to go to visit her boyfriend (of almost 2 years), who is in the Army, in another state (you live on the East Coast and he's in WA state) for a weekend before she leaves for college at the end of June? You know that even though he has leave in July he won't be able to see her because she'll be 8 hours away at orientation for school (which you are not paying for at all) so they won't see each other again until he can get leave again in Dec. (they last saw each other in Feb.). Would you let her go w/no major obstacles, put rules attached to her going or forbid her to go all together?

As much as I understand your concern, I have to say the following:
She is 18, she is an adult and is about to enter the world as an adult. In all reality you cannot forbid or force. She needs to start exploring the world on her own, while making and learning from her own mistakes and experiences. She could have definitely chose someone worse than a boy who has chosen to serve his country.

Next question overall
Do my parents have a right to deny me to see my son?
