<h1>Boyfriend in the Marine Corps deployed for 3 months in a combat zone but cannot tell me where. Is there a way to find where and if he is ok? Is this normal and how do other people get to handle the stress of not knowing if a loved is ok or not? We handled another deployement for 6 months but he was in Okinawa back then and we talked almost every day, so this is new to me especially since he told not to ask questions he cannot answer and understand the situation, that he will be fine and he might be able to contact me, but in case he might not, we will not able to talk for 3 months.</h1>

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!
