    He's Gone To Basic. And It's Only The Beginning.

    It'll be 3 years for us December 18th. He's my first everything, and I've never felt this way about anyone. He decided to sign for the army 2 years ago, and when he told me about it, I thought, "Well, all I can do is stick with it." And I have. I can't imagine being with anyone...

    I Miss My Army Boy

    My fiancee is not deployed... yet. But he's been gone since September 07 in Basic Training and AIT. I know him being gone there isn't half as bad as him being gone in Iraq, but it still hurts. It sucks not being able to talk to him, hug him, cuddle with him, and kiss him. I was...

    Tonight is a bad one

    for me!! I can't seem to get him off my mind, I'm missing him so much, and you'd think being able to see him in 10 days would make it easier and it doesn't because I know I have to say goodbye again. I'm just ready for him to be home and for us to be together again. Sometimes I...

    Week 2.5 and still haven't heard from him.

    He could not tell me where he was going or anything about his mission. :( I keep checking my email and phone to see if he contacted me and he hasn't. You know I have been in love with him since I was 18 and we technically have never been together. Life got in the way of...

    How Will I Say Good-bye

    and I miss him like crazy already, I pray time will go by fast and I get to see him! Being a military girlfriend takes a strong person and costs a lot of tears but I encourage every one of you to stay positive(: it will be worth it when your soldier comes home on leave!!!

    I just got off the phone with my soldier

    who is at AIT. He's so depressed and home sick. He's starting to not like his MOS and is just miserable. I hate knowing he's like this, that he's so sad. What could I do? Or what could I say to make him feel better?
