    Well. The weeks are finally winding down.

    My trainee is currently at beast week right now; which kind of sucks because that means no letters. But, at least he can still receive mine! These weeks have flown by, I think the first week was the hardest. It was just a lot to adjust too for the both of us. We basically lived...

    I finally got a letter,

    containing 4 different letters from my boyfriend at BMT! It's been over 2 weeks and it was so amazing to hear from him. He wants me to write him everyday. ?? I miss him like crazy and it is an awesome feeling knowing he is thinking of me.

    Hi guys! I was hoping someone could answer my

    question. Do the airmen HAVE to take leave after tech school? He's finishing tech school in April, but we're hoping he can save his leave until May so he can attend my college graduation. I'm really concerned and want for him to be there more than anything :( Please help!

    Both of my husbands were military servicemen.

    Let me qualify that statement. My first husband was a Major in the USAF. He died on September 11, 2001 when the plane he was on hit the Pentagon in Washington D.C. My second husband retired as a Lt. Colonel in the USAF.

    I never realized how much I leaned on my man

    for self esteem. is that normal? due to having a gorgeous, out going college roommate, and not being told on a daily bases I am beautiful. I feel it I'd stupid to be upset over something so tiny.
