I am 19 years old and I just started dating a marine. I really need advice and help understanding what I have got myself into. He is the sweetest guy I know so I want to be able to support him and be there for
him the best I can. He is doing some kind of training right now, but he is able to talk to me on weekends I believe. Also, after this training he said he will in fort lenordwood missouri for his job school.. What does that mean for him? We barly started dating and I dont want to lose him already by him getting stationed far from California.

First always capitalize Marine.

He is probably going to Missouri for his MOS training, then he could be back in California just depends he should know a little more info then what you have provided.

Oh I’m sorry I really didnt mean to offend by saying marine rather than Marine, I didnt know that was a rule of thumb. Yes, I know I have not provided much detail because with the few minutes he did have thats all he had time to tell me. I really appreciate your insight though.

Not knowing exactly how long your Marine has served leaves allot of open questions to answer for you. If your Marine is currently in the SOI ( School of Infantry ) he is a new Marine. After his current training in SOI he will as Mason mentioned go on to his MOS schooling which could last from 3-4 months or much longer training depending on that MOS requirement.

Generally, the Marine will then be assigned to a duty station from the MOS school location and not necessarily return to California. You may find yourself in a long distance relationship in the future, but not always. His MOS may bring him right back to California ( if he is in the Reserves that would be the case pretty much ) and things will be great. Just want to let you know what may happen.

I hope things work out for both of you.
