    All I can say is being a soldiers girlfriend is

    hard, and it sucks at times for different reasons. But if your willing to stay for all the right reasons, to stand by the man you love. In the end everything will turn out okay, and you'll know. It was worth the wait. He was worth the wait.

    How long (roughly) does it take

    before receiving a letter from your soldier in boot camp? Mine left 2 days ago. Yesterday he said he could send me a letter in 7-10 days, and he's in Oklahoma so the letter itself by mail shouldn't take more than a few days. I'm dying to get a letter and talk to him
