Hello again Roselynn,
Well I am very sorry to tell you this but I am almost sure that this person claiming to be ***** ***** is setting you up for what is known as a "military romance scam." What this means is that the person you have been talking to is not really who they say they are. They are not really in the 82nd Airbone Division of the US Army. Their true intentions are to set you up make you think you are falling in love and eventually they will ask you to send them money in the future.
These scammers are pretending to be U.S. servicemen, routinely serving in a combat zone. The scammers will often take the true rank and name of a U.S. Soldier who is honorably serving his country somewhere in the world, and then download photographs of any U.S. Soldier off the Internet, and then build a false identity to begin searching the Internet on dating sites for victims.
The reason the person has an accent when he speaks is because he is not truly from the United States or in the US Army. Most of these scammers are actually located in West African countries such as Ghana or Nigeria. These people are very good at pretending that they have found the love, but in fact they are using the military as a way to get you to trust them and eventually they will come up with an excuse for you to send them money. Here are some important things you should know about the U.S. military and why I believe this person is a scammer:
Also, for your awareness I want you to read this important advisory from the US Army about these kinds of romance scams: https://www.army.mil/article/67457/ It details all of the kinds of things that scammers will come up with to try and get money from you.
In conclusion, I believe that this person is setting you up to be scammed. If any of the red flags I mentioned above are true based on your correspondence with this person then you have a scammer on your hands and I recommend you cut all ties and communication with him immediately.
