    Jay and I started dating the summer before senior year of college. We knew he was going into the Army after graduation, but I went ahead with my plan to apply to grad school. I got in and accepted, even though I knew that would mean 3 years of separation from Jay.

    About two months before Jay left for OBC, we found out his first PCS would be to Germany.
