I tried to break up with my boyfriend in the field. I never knew he would react this way: he wants to kill himself and says he wants to be run over by the Bradley. What should I do? I am so scared because I don't want him dead, he's a soldier and the training is dangerous there! I don't know if he was being serious?

Although it is possible that he meant what he said, threatening suicide is often a tactic used to stay in a relationship. A lot of people do it as a form of manipulation, and some do it out of fear of being alone. Either he can't live without you, he is suicidal, or he is controlling. That is up to you to decide, because I do not know him. You might want to run these questions through your head:
Is he depressed? How long have you been dating? Is he ever violent or commanding? How strong is your love?
You'll have to use your judgment for this one. There are too many personality/emotional factors that play into it.1
