    My man is in Afghanistan now

    and won't be back until October. Some call it crazy, but I call it love. There are good days and bad days. Even good minutes and bad minutes. I think it's shameful when girls pretend they love a military man when all they do is complain and cheat. Be supportive and faithful! He...

    Being an Army girlfriend is tough. When I see my friends with their boyfriends, I always find myself staring at them like a creep, wondering if they know how lucky they are to be able to be with their man everyday. At work during the holidays, women come in with their soldier in...

    Well, my soldier left today

    for a two week field training out of state. It's the first of 5 trainings before he deploys. I'm actually coping a lot better than I thought I was going to (I'd been crying about it all week). I realize it's only 2 weeks, but it's the beginning of a lot of time apart, and that...

    My boyfriend called me this morning at 5 am,

    I talked to him for about 4 minutes. The first time I've talked to him since he left 2 weeks ago. It's crazy how just the sound of someone's voice can remind you of how in love you are with them. Needless to say I've had a great day.
