Preparing for Deployment

"We know that we're going to Camp Pendleton," said U.S. Marine Nathan Young. Other than that, few details of what he'll be doing are available. "As of right now, we don't know when we're leaving yet," he said.

In the meantime, Natahn and his wife Stephanie have been tying up loose ends and preparing for separation.

"I'm doing okay," said Stephanie. "The news, of course, was obviously hard at first, but we've had time to talk about it and he gets to come home at night, so that helps a little bit with the preparing to leave," she said.

When he does leave they plan on writing letters to each other every day, perhaps even sending tapes.

"We've talked about a tape recorder idea. Maybe sending some tapes back and forth to each other so that we can at least hear each other's voice," said Nathan.

Both just 22 years-old, each willing to make a sacrifice for their country.

"It's going to be hard. My normal schedule is based around him, but trying to go to school, continuing to do that, continuing to work, and just wait for him to come home," said Stephanie.
