    Love Has No Boundaries, No Barriers, No Distance

    My boyfriend and I have been together for almost eight months. Five of those eight months have seen our relationship defying normal standards of love. My boyfriend is in the army and I am a freshman at college in a sorority. Seemingly these two identities cannot coexist. I am...

    Going Away

    Being with a military man, takes a special kind of woman. One that is strong, and tough enough to hold things down and take care of things while her man is away. When he's away, even if everything is falling apart, we have to put on the "I've got this" act and pray to God that...

    I hadn't heard from him in 4 days

    which is odd because he wasn't in training or deployed. I called the base to see if they knew where he was and the woman found him. He had lost his phone and didn't get a new one yet. He called me from his supervisors phone and told me that they had taken him to Mississippi to...

    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.

    My boyfriend is in basic at Ft Benning GA.

    He has been there for about a month. I have gotten 4 letters and a call. He said he hasn't gotten any of my letters. Or any letters for that matter. I know the address is correct, so why isn't he getting my letters?!

    It's so hard sometimes being away from him

    and him being so busy it's like you are on the back burner. All I have to do is take a deep breath and remember that on Saturday he's all mine! It's so close I can taste it! It doesn't help he had to wear his dress blues and sent me a pic today. Like damn my GIJoe is sexy!

    Being a girlfriend is hard but being a military girlfriend is harder. Yes we are tough and determined but we also are alone. Unless you are one of us you don't understand, we are tough but understanding would be nice.
