    Had a pretty rough week.

    Everyone I work with on my shift gets to go home to their spouse and kids while I come home to an empty apartment every night. I try not to burden them with how I feel, but today I just lost it. I've kept my feelings in for months and today my LPO pulled me aside then I broke...

    My boyfriend wrote in one of his letters

    while at basic training , "the girls in my platoon tell me that all the girls in my company refer to me as the hot soldier and talk about me" like what is the purpose of telling me this? He is a past cheater and I don't understand how that could make me feel good. I know I am...

    To all the MILSOS who are feeling lonely

    without their SO.... It gets better. My boyfriend just got done with basic on Friday so we got to talk for the whole weekend and it was the best weekend I've had since he left. It's also unfortunate for us because he's injured so he has to go through another 9 weeks with another...

    My husband is halfway through his deployment.

    He just hit his second port a few days ago and we got in an argument basically about who has the rougher end of the stick here. The deployment has been hard on the both of us, but I agree and see now that it's harder for him considering he was out at sea for 60 days not seeing...

    I messed up when me and my husband were dating,

    he lost a lot of trust for me. This was November of last year, we got married in March and now he's deployed. The other day he told me he trusts me again and that absolutely meant the world to me! I'm happy he made that decision while deployed. Military marriages get hard at...

    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...

    My boyfriend asked me to marry him Sunday

    and then had to leave Monday. That's such a hard thing to deal with. So now I'm engaged at 17 and still in high school of course I'm going to get hate and rude comments from everyone but no one understands the situation.. Anyone going through the same thing ?
