    Thank you to all our veterans

    and boyfriends out there that fight so hard for our freedom. I'm grateful to call my boyfriend my hero. He's been through so much making this commitment to our country and I couldn't be more proud of that man. He's so very special to me. The love I have for that man cannot be...

    Sometimes I feel like my boyfriend is the only

    person who has ever truly made me feel appreciated and loved. This is the main reason I miss him so much, everyone else is always too involved with their own lives to pay attention to me and my problems (even thought I'm there for them, when they're in need) just wish someone...

    I'm pretty new to this whole thing.

    I just missed my boyfriend's phone call

    for the second time because I was asleep. I miss him so much and feel like no one understands the emotional pain I'm in. This is only his second week being gone and I already feel like I cant function without him.

    My bf graduates next month at Fort Leonard Wood.

    Nobody in his family can go to the graduation. I can go, but I'd have to go alone. I don't know what to do or how to go about it... Any suggestions?

    Soldiers are the most secretive

    and intellectual men when it comes to surprising their family and SO back at home. Y'all have any stories to share about how your soldier surprised you coming home?

    Hi everyone. I'm new to EP.

    My boyfriend (of 10 months) is going to deploy soon for 9 months. I would love to chat with anyone on here who is going through a deployment also. I go from being calm and thinking positively to feeling like a total basket case about it and it sucks.

    I am relatively new to being an army girlfriend

    and it's the hardest thing I've had to do. I can barely cope with 3 weeks of him being away for some training. I fully respect the wives/girlfriends who don't get to see there loved ones for months and not having any communication with them at all. But I will stick by him!
