Absolutely everything (maybe edit your post to take out mention of where he is though if you can)

He has no "normal" where he is, and you're going to be his link to the real world. Especially since this is a fairly new relationship I would suggest that the more information the better, you are still getting to know each other!

What did you have for breakfast, what did you do at work today, did you go for a walk, pictures of things you see and do, what are you watching on telly at the mo etc. Silly memes. Anything. He'll tell you if you're boring and he probably just wants distracting.

But maybe leave out anything too heavy as your boy sounds like he's struggling to deal (my partner and I do "all bad news on a certain day of the week" unless it's urgent and just cheer each other up the rest of the time). If you're stuck for ideas and have the signal, take him for a walk somewhere nice by you if its private enough and show him the view for a bit.

Also, if its true, stick in "I'm proud of you", "thank you for telling me" every now and again instead of "glad you are okay". Try and move away from letting him know you worry so often if you can - more for you then for him, I always see it that worrying wont make a difference to whether our partners come back, but helping keep their morale up by having faith in them and their unit will.

Remember he is good at his job, or he wouldn't be there. Your confidence in him might boost his own and could make a huge difference. Good luck! X
