    Dear Mr. President

    please do not take action in Syria. I do not wish to have my family members or boyfriend put in harms way. I understand their job is to serve this country. I understand that they must do what is told to them. I know that my one voice of objection will not change the way you feel...

    So my boyfriend and I have been best of friends

    for the last 7 years and he's now been the love of my life for almost a year. He's been talking about the Army ever since I can remember and I knew that as soon as I said "Yes" to him that I would be faced with one of the biggest challenges of my life. He's still got a couple...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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?

    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...
