    My Life as a Military Girlfriend

    I hold no formal recognition with the powers that be. I am at the bottom of the chain. I hold no Military ID card, I am not a dependent or a parent. The man I love may face unspeakable dangers, and I am at the mercy of those who possess this recognition for news. I understand...

    So yesterday after me

    and my boyfriend talked I told him it was okay for him to go to the Army. But in reality now I'm hurt and scared. I want him to be able to come back and hold me and etc. I'm not sure if anyone else gets this feeling or it's just me before their partner leaves for the service. My...

    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.

    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.

    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...

    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 don’t always make sense.

    One filled with inconsolable sobbing, followed by the next with unexplainable happiness. It sucks. It’s hard. It’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...

    It's easy to walk away

    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...

    My twin sister is mad that I'm spending all of my free time with my soldier this week before he leaves for 18 weeks. I don't feel bad for giving him all my time, he deserves it after all but it really hurts being bashed on Facebook.
