elena1 :  Very common, especially in a combat zone.  My husband was active duty for 6 years starting in the mid 2000’s, and even to this day he can’t tell me where he traveled when he was on his submarine because they were on classified missions.

I know it’s hard, but you have to know that he will contact you when he is able.

My ex husband was in the Marine Corps. He wasn’t on classified missions, so we talked pretty regularly and I knew where he was. If your bf is telling you that he can’t tell you, believe him. 

I know it’s hard wondering and not knowing if he’s OK. I carried my phone with me EVERYWHERE. Try to find some additional hobbies to occupy your time so you don’t drive yourself crazy.

This is very common. I know it’s hard but you have to try and stay busy to take your mind off it.

Trust that he’ll be ok, and contact you when he can.

That’s incredibly hard bee. I don’t really have a lot to contribute except to tell you (as a Navy brat myself) that yes it is normal and to wish you the very best of luck! Much love coming your way and to your man in uniform!
