    ... He says it's hard being apart and he almost wants to end it. But when I ask him if he wants to be with me he says yes. He says he doesn't want to break up. He doesn't know what he wants.... I'm worried. I keep telling him not to quit. It seems like he is quitting. I don't...

    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...

    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.
