    My boyfriend and I got through boot camp!

    He came home for his Christmas leave and is now back at AIT. Everything is falling into place and it's so nice to be able to talk to him on the phone. Boot camp is the hard part. Not having the constant communication was hard but it made us stronger in the end. I can't wait to...

    Sometimes the military sucks.

    But you get out of it what you put into it. If your going to be one of those people who just complains that your soldier is gone or cant be with and just hate on the military your going to have a horrible time and it will reflect not only on you but you your boyfriend. Be...

    My boyfriend leaves this MONDAY!

    January 19th To go to training... 😔 I've prayed this day would never come.. But here it is. He didn't tell me until January 16th that he had to leave. I'm only 17 and he's 18 almost 19. I'm really scared that he will end up finding someone else but then again I trust him. If...

    Being An Army Girlfriend Is Tough, But...

    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...

    Five letters so far. I've been

    so happy. 43 more days until I see his handsome face. Going to be booking hotel rooms soon. The days go by faster than you think, stay strong and look forward to seeing your solider.

    I'm new to the Experience Project.

    I really only joined because I finally found a place where army girlfriends can talk. It seems like there are a MILLION army wife groups, but barely any army girlfriend groups. That's really saddening. You've got to start out as an army girlfriend to get to be an army wife, so...

    My bf is in training

    and deploys in March. I feel like he is pushing me away and things aren't like they used to be. I really do love him, but this is so hard!! I feel like I can't really talk to anyone else about it because they don't understand.

    Even I'm not an Army gf anymore I love thinking

    about the time when my bf and I met. I surely miss seeing him in his uniform but I'm more proud that he is allowed to live his veteran life now. He did so much for his country and he deserves to relax now. Sometimes he's a pain in my butt but I wouldn't change a thing on him...

    I often read and reread the letters he sent me

    while at Boot Camp just because it is something personal and intimate. I catch myself smiling and laughing once in a while because i can hear his voice as my eyes go over the words. Not saying that phone calls and texts aren't but letters make it so much more romantic, and I...

    I would never go behind my boyfriends back

    and cheat. I hear girls say things about partying and hooking up with guys while their bf's are gone like "oh he doesn't have to know" yeah you don't deserve a military man if you're gonna purposely cheat on him and not even feel bad. Not even sorry
