    And I hate it! My husband has been in the navy

    for almost 2 years and I am so proud of him but when it comes to our family and relationship it's really taking a toll on us all. The military is molding him into a completely different person that I don't know anymore. There are a lot of young abd single sailors that have the...

    past year.. It's been very interesting and full of surprises.. On January 26th 2014 my boyfriend left to go to MEPs, I didn't get to see him again until May 2nd 2014. I was really broken inside when he left, I've been alone most of my life. I didn't sleep, I didn't eat much, I...

    Moving to Great Lakes in 5 days to be with my

    sailor! Although he has night school now and we won't get as much time together as I thought but it's worth seeing him every day and sleeping with him. Although I am extremely nervous and I'm going to miss everyone like crazy I think I'm ready for a new chapter in my life

    We've both become a little more skilled at dealing with underways, but they never become easy. I've created new friendships in the time that he's been gone, thrown myself into work, going out whenever I'm invited, just to keep busy. Just so the loneliness doesn't sink it. But, it...
