    I just have to get this out there

    because me and my battle wife have been talking about this a lot. So everyone at our school has been saying some rude things to us lately such as "You can't truly love a soldier" or "You are crazy to even try." Or the one we hear the most "It is going to end with one of you...

    I am flying out to my husband's family day

    and graduation and I am so very excited. It's just a few hours out. It has been so long without him. I know there will be harder times in the future but one day at a time, right? I am just going to enjoy every moment I can get with him.

    I HATE those grumpy military wives

    that are against young marriage. Like, it's okay for you to be against it but having age on your side does not make you more likely to succeed. Do NOT try to talk anyone out of it or make a big fuss of their decision. Try until you can't try anymore. We'll never know until we...

    I leave for Alaska in one week!

    I am getting nervous but it still hasn't hit me yet that I only have a one way ticket and I will be living there! I cannot wait to see my husband and start out lives together. After over 2 years of long distance it still doesn't feel real that it's actually happening.

    Good evening ladies, I hope everyone had a

    marvelous day. I am not a military girlfriend - rather I am the boyfriend that is in the military and I wanted to ask for your insight. My girlfriend is across the country and I will get to see her in a month but what is the hardest part for you being away from your man? I want...

    The hardest thing right

    He's at MOS and we can talk every night

    and I know I should feel lucky and I do. I also understand its mentally and physically tiring but I can't help it when I get irritated when he falls asleep on the phone and I have to repeat myself 5 times. I don't love him any less but I would rather end the conversation ten...

    My boyfriend hasn't brought up marriage anymore.

    But whenever we talk about the future and his next duty station after he comes home from deployment he'll say like "when we move" or "when we find out where our new station will be" I get really excited because I know he still sees me in his plans.
