My fiance is in the army and a little over half-way through his enlistment. He's got an incredible work ethic and is typically pretty upbeat, but guarded emotionally when it comes to talking about work stress. But recently he just broke down and admitted how much he hates his duty station and how effed up his platoon is. He keeps me pretty up to date about the happenings on base and with the other guys, but this is the first time he's been this upset about it. He said he's been slightly depressed lately and I've definitely been able to see it.
I've tried to be encouraging and remind him of how much I love and miss him (we're long-distance), but there's only so much that I can do. He keeps saying that if I were there, that'd be one less thing to stress about (which I totally understand as long-distance is difficult at times), but there's got to be more to it. What can I do to help him? Or what are some other options, such as military specialized counseling or something?
