    Non military couples just don't

    even know how incredibly lucky they are to get to see their other half everyday. Or every week. Or even every month.

    How do you know whether to keep fighting to

    make it work or let go? I've talked to him about the communication issues and it doesn't change a single thing. Haven't talked in over a week now.

    My boyfriend sent me my first letters

    and as I read them I was bawling. It was so reassuring to think he thinks of me every day and how much he misses me. These three past weeks were hell, but this made me feel much better

    Girls, please don't give up on your guy.

    It will get easier, I promise. He needs you now more than ever. If you truly love him and believe he is the one for you, it will be worth it in the end. If you haven't heard from him, don't worry. That doesn't mean anything. Just keep hanging in there <3

    Those Moments..

    So tonight I'm laying here after writing my boyfriend a letter, and it's one of those nights.. One of those nights where it just feels like you want to go buy a plane ticket and be with him, just be near him, even if it's only for a little while. You miss everything about him...

    We sent him off to A-School today.

    I cried, not because I'm sad, but because this brave man chose me to stay by his side. I'm so proud of him. <3

    it hurts so bad every time I get off the phone

    with him. I am forgetting what it feels like to be in his arms. I am forgetting what he taste like. I want him. Plain and simple. I want just him. I want him more then I want food or sleep. He is all I think about. some days I feel fine, but others I feel like complete poop.

    My boyfriend has been gone

    for exactly 3 weeks, he graduates may 1st. I've only got one phone call, I sent him a letter before he sent one to me because we got his address from the information letter he sent. I'm scared he's not missing me as much as I'm missing him.

    Acceptance

    I haven't talked to him in over a week. This is the first deployment I've ever had to go through with him. Before I met him, I knew nothing about the military & didn't really care. The last person to be in the military in my family was my grandpa, back in like the 50s. I have...

    The Wonderful World Of The Emotional Rollercoaster

    Anyone who had a loved one in any branch of the military knows this ride all too well, and sadly for us, it isn't a ride we can get off easily. Just when you have one foot out of the rollercoaster car, the ride takes off again. I am (of course) no exception to this wonderfully...
