    Worth The Wait.

    I'm 17 and i am in love with a soldier. I never understood why it was always said the strongest of women are the ones who stand behind a soldier. I now know. People always ask me how do i do it? I simply say because I love him. They ask is it hard? Well of course. That question...

    You Aren't Above Us

    So.. I've seen a few ladies post about this and I think it's a touchy topic for some.. But I'm not afraid to say this.. I don't care what your husbands/fiancés/boyfriends rank is. That rank has nothing to do with you, therefore YOU are no better nor worse than me. It's his rank...

    I need help!!! My man is in Basic

    and he was fine and dandy up until a month ago, but then he randomly messaged his mom to tell me not to go to family day or his graduation. He said he would call and tell me the details, but this seems very strange. And, his mom says he has been detached in his letters to her...

    He Is Everywhere.

    Every where I've been the past couple of days, are places that I have been with him. My mother and I went to town, and I could see us sitting on a bench in October. I can see him sitting in the chair behind where I am now, legs crossed, and even at the computer. I can see us...

    Ninth And Tenth Letters!

    Well this morning was freaking insane! Work was so busy we're completely booked and there were at times 100+ people in our tiny little restaurant for breakfast we even had to open up 106 for over flow. We never have to open up 106 in the mornings! So work went by so slow because...

    I moved to be near him.

    I uprooted my life over 1300 miles away trying to see if it would work. I didn't want to rush anything. I believe in taking your time especially if it has to do with marriage. It's been 8 months since I moved and almost 12 months since we've been together. It's hard...

    Sixth Letter!! Woot Woot!

    I'm super stoked it's my sixth letter and it happens to be the longest. But He told me he will have less free time because his unit is moving to the white phase. So i think he's warning me that his letters will be less and less I think I don't know but still he wants me to...

    Remember: You CAN do this! This was NEVER meant to be easy. But what is the fun of life being easy? You have to have a little mishaps. Like Bob Ross said. There are no mistakes, only happy accidents. Remember He needs you there, even if he doesn't act like it. Everything...

    Okay so how I've read

    that soldiers in basic get their phone every Sunday.. How long would they be able to call? And would they be able to text on Sundays too or just call? And how many weeks until they get their phone on Sundays?

    when your man is away. Mine is a country boy so I find myself wearing his mossy oak hat everyday, listening to country music and hugging the bear he got me for valentines day which has a heartbeat in it. We've been dating for 3 months and he left for boot camp in our 3rd month...

    He's My Soldier, I'm His Cheerleader

    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...
