    One day, he looked at me

    and said, "Baby, I'm sorry for the Navy thing. I hate to put you through this." I looked him in the eyes and said, "I'm sorry for going to medical school to be a cardiologist." He said, "What do you mean? That's been your dream. I can't hate you for that." I said, "and I can...

    My name is Sina. I'm 23 and I'm from Hanover, Germany. My boyfriend is currently serving. I've come to meet people in the same situation. I never expected to be with someone who would be in the military, specially in the U.S. military, but you don't choose who you fall in love...

    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...

    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...

    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
