    **reminder**

    Hey girls!! Lately I have noticed that we are all getting a little too comfortable with sharing information about our Soldiers on the internet.. We need to remember to be more careful. Enemies of our Country could use some of the information we post in trying to hurt our country...

    My boyfriend left for basic training about 2

    weeks ago and it's extremely hard, waiting for a letter has been the hardest part. I know I can stay strong, I love him so much. But I've been so down without him especially going from talking everyday to not even a phone call is really hard. Does it get any easier?

    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.

    When your friends ask you about your boyfriend

    and when you say you have to write letters they think it's so cute. But to me it was only cute at first. Now I just wish I could hear his voice or see his name pop up on my screen. Anyone else feel this way?

    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...
