    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.
