    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.

    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...

    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?!

    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!
