    Dear John?

    I notice a lot of girls refer to their military relationship or this life style as a Dear John life. Everytime I see this I can't help but think they don't really truly understand what a Dear John is. It's not something you should refer yourself to, it's not a title to proudly...

    When duty calls, and he must go. I know he needs my support and hope. When deployment comes, and he must leave, and we never know what goodbyes will mean. When his heart is heavy, and he misses home, when he has to go places no other man would go. And when he slowly looses faith...
