I Am Trying To Be Strong! But Its Getting Hard!My husband of almost one year just joined the army he has been gone almost two months and we have about a month to go until he is out of basic training and goes to AIT. I have known my husband since I was 12 years old and it was love at first sight. We started dating along time ago and then out of the blue we decided to get married, in Las Vegas! About a month later, he joined the army and it took him 10 months to leave. I have been trying so hard to be strong and walk around with head held high, but I miss my husband! I know that basic is just the start of him being gone for long periods of time, and everyone I know keeps telling me that, but it doesn't make it easier for me to get through the day with out being sad. I am so proud of him! He has never had a positive role model in his life and he chose to take care of me and do something good with his life. His mother tells me almost everyday she thinks he is stupid for joining the military, I quickly come to his defense but sadly I am not finding much support with our families. Its very sad! I feel very alone.
I am so glad I found a place where I can go and get support!!
