My husband went to OSUT at Fort Knox,KY. two months after we started dating officially. I saw him for one weekend half way though training and then again for 10 days while he was home on leave before being stationed at Fort Riley, KS. We did the long distance thing for 2 years before I joined him at Fort Riley, seeing each other once every 11 months for 10-14 days. It was tough, but there were tons of letters, e-mails, cards, care packages, and phone calls (I lost quite a few paychecks to paying my parents back for using the phone all night). Communication is key, as is making every minute that you are able to be together count. I wish you a lot of luck.
