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. 477 People

    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.

    Missing My Soldier.

    I've been reading some of your stories of how everyone copes with the absence of their significant other. I don't seem to find the right words to describe those feelings right now. I just know its hard for my family to see me this down, since he left for BCT. It's my first...

    I think I've re read the letters I've gotten

    from my soldier about a million times since last night. Slept with them next to me. This is my comfort for now. This is the first genuine smile I've had in weeks. Four weeks and no word from my love and then I get all my letters all at once yesterday. I prayed everyday since...

    My man is officially gone now

    and on his way to Fort Benning. It was so hard watching him go but at the same time I'm really happy and excited for him and I know this is what he really wants. I miss him so much already but I know it will go by fast. 105 days (;

    My boyfriends last night was tonight

    and he's headed off to MEPS tomorrow and soon to Georgia where he'll spend 17 weeks there for OSUT. We've got the whole being in different places down, but not being able to talk to him will drive me crazy. Are there any tips on how to keep calm and live on?

    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.
