    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...

    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...

    I spent the last 5 hours at the hotel with

    Tyler, but we all known I can't stay all day. Tomorrow he swears in and is off to Great Lakes. Everything feels very unreal. It literally feels like I am in a dream. He has been in DEP for 8 months and suddenly BAM the time has come. I miss him already.

    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

    I miss him so much. He's been gone

    for almost 3 weeks now and the only communication I've had is through his mom. Is that weird? If he can talk to him family, why can't he contact me?

    Sometimes, I Wonder...

    Every time we make plans

    for a skype date something comes up. Either it is work - which I can understand and it's not his fault- or he does something with his friends, even after promising me that this time he won't go with them. It's so frustrating.

    and his back was turned to me. Hands behind his back and thumbs linked. three other guys stood next to him. The room was dead silent besides the sound of one of the moms crying. Tears streamed down my face, but they were happy tears. I am so proud of him and nothing could change...

    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
