    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 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...

    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...

    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.

    I've realized that these irrational

    and bipolar emotions are all apart of being a military significant other. One minute you love him & you're happy, the next you're asking yourself what the hell am I doing then he says something that reminds you why you're doing this & why it's all worth it. But a few moments...

    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.
