My boyfriend is Captain Sean O'Halloran in the US Army. Brave rifles! He was deployed to Afghanistan for his third deployment. It was on his birthday this July. He will be gone for 9 months. His first two were in Iraq, before we met so this is my first one. It is a scary new challenge in my life. It has been hard on us since last October. He had to leave the Ft Hood area (where we met) and go to Ft Leonard Wood for 6 months prior to be stationed at Ft Polk 2 months before his deployment. Somehow we have made it this far! I want to tell the whole world how much he means to me. We don't have a shocking story at all. I just know he is really great at his job and never gives up on any challenge. He has been inspiring me the more I get to know him for 2 years now. We met two years ago sometime this week! He tries a little bit of everything and loves adventures! I can go on for days saying what I simply love about him. His friends and family love and miss him back in Michigan and they've been great support even though I live in Texas. He and I made a build-a-bear Army style with a recording in the paw for me for his deployment. I hold it when I do homework and when I fall asleep. It is the cutest thing. My boyfriend loves his hometown teams which are the Detroit Lions, Detroit Redwings (he lovesss hockey), and I am not sure about the basketball but I know he also loves the Detroit Tigers. (I went to my first Tigers game I heard gunshots the whole time and no one else seemed to notice lol) I am not a sports fan but I go along to spend time with him whenever I can. His parents send all the sport filled magazines to him in care packages. He also loves his babies (a car and motorcycle). We don't know what our plans are after he gets back. Hopefully, everything will fall into place like they have been doing. I just want him to come home safe to me soon. I miss him. And I love him to pieces.
