I just recently started seeing this guy who is in the navy reserves. It's just the beginning of relationship like (2 months) and he's gettin ready to deploy on a hospital ship. So contact right now is kinda limited plus I know not to give specifics to anyone. So I was wondering anyone here have experience with the hospital ship deployments? I didn't get a chance to ask how long I just know where. I know they can vary in length but was looking for like a estimate. I know about writing and sending packages but how do you keep in contact with sailors? Do they have access to email on the ship? Can they use their cell phones at port (he has an iphone). He keeps apologizing for leaving when we're just starting to build our relationship. I keep telling him its okay it's his job and I support him and will be waiting on him to get back. I'm pretty down about it but I don't want to tell him to worry about me but also I don't want him to think I don't care for not telling him. Please any help, advice, etc?
