I Am a United States Army Girlfriend

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 6,309 People

    I am officially the girlfriend of an US solider.

    My boyfriend swore into the army today and he leaves September 29th. I got to be there for the swear in and it tore me to pieces. I know I still have two months left with him, but it still hurts to know he won't be here. Going to have to take this day by day I guess.

    honestly still don't know

    why my bf doesn't have his license or a car -_- I know he doesn't need one on base because there's no point he's always with his homies but at least a license right ?

    You don't know, but I'm the girl

    who cries every morning, and hopes every night for his safe return. I'm the girl who drags herself out of bed every morning so that he will be proud of her when he comes home. I'm the girl who lies in bed longing for him to be lying next to me. I'm the girl who sits quietly...

    Am I allowed to mail a card to him at basic?

    it is red white and blue on the outside and his friends have signed the inside of it. I don't want him to get in trouble.

    who understand the crazy sadness that happens when your boyfriend is away. My friends don't understand and they tell me I shouldn't be upset.

    My boyfriend is going into field training

    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?

    Today was the last day

    that I will be able to hang out with my man until Christmas besides his graduation. I tried to stay strong but I ended up breaking down in front of him. He leaves from basic in 3 days but now I'm counting the days until graduation. Only 108, I hope they go by fast.

    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.
