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. 420 People

    && it has begun. The wait

    for his letter. I'll spend the next couple of days hunting the mailman. **** even my heart skips a beat when the phone rings.

    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...

    So he called & gave me his address

    and now I'm procrastinating at writing him. I guess I was so wrapped up in the idea of missing him that now I actually want to miss him haha. He was so good at maintaining contact before they took away his phone <3

    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...

    Baby got his phone back on Sunday

    so we've been talking pretty much non stop. He's heading to the airport at 3 am so we're pulling an all nighter. I'll be in his arms again tomorrow!! Time is going so slow. I'm ready for him to be home.

    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.

    I can't believe this time apart has gone by

    so fast. In just 8 days, I'll be with my soldier again!! I have so many mixed emotions about it, I can't sit still. I'm so incredibly proud of him for what's he's done so far and what he will do in the future. These last few days can't go by fast enough!
