    My boyfriend has been in almost a tr now,

    for the most part I'm fine but every now and then I hit a rough patch. I start to miss him then get angry at him for being gone, but then feel guilty and selfish that I feel this way. Because of this we argue which makes me feel worse but I can't help it. I guess I just wasn't...

    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.
