    This is one of my favorite "poems",

    it is not a poem at all. It is a promise of a military couple and I believe that every couple shares this feeling as well. A Soldier's Promise ... I cannot promise you every night of my life. I cannot promise to be beside you for every difficult moment, every trial, every...

    How hard was it moving

    as a new wife? I'm kinda afraid of the move. We have three weeks and it's starting to set in. I love him more than I can say, but moving away from everything is so scary. What's something you wish you knew? -the new wife.

    Lucky Me.

    What. A. Bummer. Don't get me wrong, the Army is a respectable career and lifestyle. It pays well and has amazing benefits. Sadly, the saying, "It's too good to be true," likes to prove itself to be a factual statement. My husband has been away for a year already. In that time...

    A U.S. Soldier….His emotions are impenetrable,

    yet his shoulders are soft for those that need someone to lean on. His hands are firm yet know exactly where they need to be. If he has his arms wrapped around you, he’s about to end your life or you’re in the safest place you could ever be. He’s stubborn but will let you...

    I don't even like saying "Army Wife",

    because I am first and foremost a wife to my husband before a wife to a soldier. It's not that I'm not proud of him for his work and what not, but I'm not ever going to be overbearing and obnoxiously patriotic. I don't like that MilSo ****.

    I'M In Love With A Soldier

    Loving a soldier is a high price to pay, loving him truly is hard when he's away. It's being alone with nothing to hold; lt's being young, but feeling old; it's having him whisper his love for you; it's whispering back that you love him too. There comes a kiss and a promise for...
