    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...

    As Valentine's Day Approaches...

    I have always thought Valentine's Day was stupid, but it makes me miss Mikey, of course. I was talking to some of my friends about what they are doing etc.. I was just thinking how lucky we are, their men will probably never write them a love letter. Our civilian girlfriends will...

    It's easy to walk away

    and date a civilian. But instead, we check our phones every second hoping for that five minute phone call or three word text message. We break down and cry when we miss him. We force that smile because the pride and love for our men is stronger than anything else. We cherish...

    I'm hoping for maybe some advice.

    I'm about to start my senior year of high school but my boyfriend is about to start his journey in the navy. He was a grade above me so he gets his start on his future a little earlier than me but sadly there's not many other girls I can talk to about having a boyfriend in the...

    My corpsman is on a four month deployment on a

    hospital ship. It's been two months already and we email once a week and he hasn't called in over a month. I cry because I feel like he's losing interest in me. But I know he's just busy. He turned his service off. But gets wifi when he's around it. He gets on Instagram to post...

    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...

    I have been close with this guy

    since November 2014. He and I started to share our feelings with one another before he left for boot camp. Ever since then, we've been working on being together. We have our struggles, but other than that, he makes me extremely happy. The upside is he'll be home in August, but...

    are; but push through it! I thought it would take forever for the day I get to see my sailor and I thought it would never get easier. And some days are easier than others. but at long as you try and keep busy; and write your sailors as much as you can. it will come faster than...

    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

    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...
