OMG, that has to be hard!  I thought about going into the military for a while but I'm not sure I could handle being away from DS that long!

Hmm...do you have a computer?  Can you set up skype visits with your daughter a few times a week?  Can you mail her letters for your mom to read or pictures?

Skype is a good idea.

I can't imagine how much you must miss your little girl. hugs

Military always skypes with their extended families.  Are you able to set something like this up?

I know its hard being away, but you ddecinitely need go stay and graduate. Give your mom your schedule and call at prearranged times, skype and write her letters.

Perhaps you can ask for some leave?  Is that possible?  How long is this training?  Other than calling or skype there's really no other way to communicate without technology or until you can physically get away from your base.
