I Have A Soldier In Basic Training Or In Ait

This is a group for us new to the military life with SIT's (soldiers in training) who just made one of the biggest decisions of their life. 433 People

    my boyfriend just told me in his last letter

    that he's only gotten 2 of my letters in the whole 2 months he's been there and I've sent at least like 50!!!! This is so frustrating: (

    I won't be talking to him

    for 3 days this week and next week he finally comes home from ait. I'm super excited for that but a little sad that I won't be talking to him for three days. I just hate not being able to talk to my baby. He's my entire world. As I'm writing this I can hear him sound asleep on...

    their bf & I'm here like 😒😤😡😡 😢😢😢. It's been three weeks & I miss him now. I'm getting angry for having to wait on his letter. The only thing that keeps me going is that I know for a fact that he probably loves & misses me more than I love & miss his skinny...

    Seriously feel like there's a gaping hole in my

    stomach from missing him... And this is only his second week at basic. The thought of him getting deployed in the future breaks my heart into a million pieces.

    It's been a week now.

    . A week since I saw him. A week since I talked to him. A week since I texted him. It's really hard not having him hear to talk to. I just want to hear his voice or even get a letter telling me how he is. I am trying to keep busy, but it's times like these where I am laying in...

    again on this one but what is everyone's input on writing your soldier everyday? Do any of you write to your soldiers everyday or do you think I should limit them so I don't overwhelm him or take his focus away from graduating? Cause idk what I'll do if he doesn't! Your feedback...

    My guy is at Ft. Benning.

    And although he only has one month left of AIT I feel like I can't stand one more day. Although he's been gone for 7 months already, when he came home for Christmas our bond got so much stronger and he rarely left my side. Having to send him off again was so hard. It's been a...

    They Say That Absence Makes The Heart Grow Fonder

    So I made it through the sucky weeks that my boyfriend spent at Basic. I'll be honest; there were many nights that I cried myself to sleep and would wake up in the morning to mentally slap myself and pull it all together until Sunday. I was actually very fortunate; my boyfriend...

    Has anyone ever felt like giving up on their

    loved one? Bcuz lately I've been having the compelling urge to tell him to move on. Maybe it's because I'm tired of missing him all the time.

    So I got what will probably be my last letter

    from my guy, the good news is that he past his last PT test, the bad news is, he nearly cracked his sternum, he is sore, but he is alright, I guess, I just tend to over worry, so I hope that he is okay, and can still graduate in a week.
