    do i go visit him?

    Advertisements
    so my boyfriend is stationed in hawaii in the navy. i visited him in may for the first time and i want to visit him again before he goes on his first deployment soon. we missed our 2 yrs and my bday and his bday is in aug so we could celebrate all three while there.

    i would be staying in his barrack but while hes at work i would kinda be trapped in there since we aren't married so i dont have a military i.d or anything. do you think that i should visit him even though hes still gunna be working for a lot of the time hes there? plus i live in boston so the flights about 1000 : / i just dont want to waste money but want to see him, esp since i cant during the school year because im still in college. advice please!

    I don't think you can stay in the barracks. I would definitely have him check on that before you make any plans.

    I agree, I don't think you are allowed to stay there. Personally, I wouldn't go and visit since he isn't going to take any leave to spend time with you. I would save up my money and visit him when he gets back from his deployment.

    I wouldn't. It sounds like you won't spend much time together and you may be violating the policies about staying in the barracks.

    The barracks have become a lot more strict. You risk getting your boyfriend into a lot of trouble and potentially havingno place to stay if caught.

    I used to fly from Ct to Hi all the time. You get breaks in November and December, if he is around, I would go then. Tickets are much cheaper in the fall.

    Like others have said, you can't stay in the barracks...but I'd go visit him. I'm currently visiting DF and I spend the days alone and a few hours at night with him, totally worth the $500 airfare to me

    Trapped is right. You can't stay there. Can you guys pool $ for a hotel?

    If it were me, after checking to make sure everything was ok with me visiting and our arrangements, I would spend the money. To me, money comes and goes and getting to spend time with him before deployment would be worth it. If he didn't have leave though, I would try to get a rental car so I could do stuff while he was busy.
