    My Soldier was sweet enough to set an alarm

    so he could wake up and talk to me despite being out in the field and only sleeping 6 hours in the last week just to talk to me before the start of my week. This is the kind of stuff that makes it worth it.

    I am not a Military Girlfriend; I'm a girl in

    the military. This is a message to all of you military girlfriends. I'm deployed right now, I go days and months without being able to get to a phone, just being in the field. Not able to write or email or anything. When we're deployed it's like time stops, and everyone back...

    Hey guys! I recently talked to my counselor

    about ways to cope with missing my boyfriend. She had some really good things to say. She told me when i am unable to talk to him or he is just too busy and can't talk, to connect with him some way like make a care package to send to him or write him a letter. This way you are...

    So after a 13 hr drive by soldier is finally

    home! The only bad side, is he's not at his dads for two days so I have to wait to actually spend proper time with him. He did come and see me last night quickly when he first got home. Ahh so excited for the next two weeks with him!

    Well, obviously I'm not a girlfriend (being a guy and all that) but I'd just like to say to all of you that as a veteran, I'm proud of you all for your love and commitment to our men in uniform. As one who was once deployed for two tours in a very nasty little war, I salute both...

    For all the girls worried about their men

    changing during bootcamp, they don't! Mine didn't, he was the same goofy loving man he was before he left. If anything he's more sentimental and caring.

    Days are weird. They donโ€™t always make sense.

    One filled with inconsolable sobbing, followed by the next with unexplainable happiness. It sucks. Itโ€™s hard. Itโ€™s a constant whirlwind of emotions, many which you never knew existed. Every time you think things are about to even out, you wake up in tears; you roll over and...

    In a military relationship,

    getting married or engaged at a young age is normal. Because to us we probably don't have forever, but we have right now. So we take it, and appreciate it. That's why we decided to grow up faster and be the spouse of someone in the military. We chose to put things aside for our...

    I loved you before the uniform

    and I'll love you after. before the dog tags and combat boots. before the sleepless nights and unwanted tears. We've been through it all. To be where we are today are worth those homecoming kisses because true love conquers all.

    Not everyone is fit to be a girlfriend of a

    Military Man, whether he be at boot camp, AIT, deployment, or training. But you must choose to let them go in the beginning or be by their side from the beginning to the end. The truth is no one is ready to take on this life, but for those that stick by them til the end it is...

    I have no clue what I would do without my man.

    We've been apart for about 13 weeks now (even though that's like nothing in the military world) but it's been a little bit of an eye opener. We are a fairly new and young couple, and we're new to this, so naturally... I question whether I'm strong enough to live the life of a...

    military girlfriend and not have to go through the hell I am going through right now. At this point being a military girls friend is far easier on me than my "civilian" part of my life. Tho I do know that God gives his toughest battles to his strongest warriors!!

    One thing that has really gotten under my skin

    recently is how many girls feel like they have a separation between them and their friends because of the military. I personally never felt that way. I felt alone at times when they were with their significant other, but actually had friends who's parents were military or they...

    Never cried as hard as I just did.

    He told me his heart already hurts from missing me. God I hope this gets easier. I pray for us both to gain the strength we need to make it through this time apart. Soon I hope to be back in his arms.

    When girls talk about having to go ONE WHOLE

    WEEK without seeing their husband or boyfriend, I'm just like "please shut your mouth." Girls that aren't milsos just have no clue at all.

    and date a civilian. But instead we wake up to an empty side of the bed, we check our phones every seconds hoping for that 5 minute phone call or three word text, we break down and cry when we miss him, we force that smile because the pride and love for our men is stronger than...
