    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...

    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...

    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...
