New To The Site & Sooo Excited

Hi All!
My name is Brett Marie, and I am so happy to found you guys. I am 25 years old, and have been with my soldier since long before he was one. It is so nice to know there is a community of girls going through similar experiences to my own.
My boyfriend is a Signal Officer, and we have been together for almost 7 years! He was the first boy I went on a date with in college, and we never looked back. When he joined the Army I was a lot of things, mostly scared to death. Now that he has gotten through basic training, OCS, and all the other training aspects, we are settling into "Army life" as much as possible. I am moving at the end of the month so we can live together again, and am a little nervous about picking up my life to follow a boy....well not just A boy, but THE boy :)
Hopefully some of you ladies have had to make the tough choice of following your man, and have some tips for me??? Was ot hard to leave behind your life, to follow his?? I know there is lots of moving in our future, and I am embracing the opportunity, but can't help but feel a bit nervous.
Hope to get to know you all soon!

Thanks so much for the kind words!! It was definitely a hard decision to make, but one I am very happy about. We are so excited to start the next chapter of our lives together, and like you, this has really made us stop & think bout what we want !<br />

And Lovemysoldier- Thanks for the invite to the new site.....going there now :)

Thank you so much for responding to my story. Unfortunately, I cannot go with him because I am starting grad school this fall. The good thing is, I should be done with it by the time his tour in Germany is done and we're both hoping that I can visit at least once. I know this whole process has already made us closer because it's forcing us to talk about things we've never talked about before. But it doesn't make it any easier to see him go for so long...<br />

I really admire your strength in deciding to move with him away from home. I have spent some time abroad, and I can tell you that it will fly by, especially if you spend the time together. There will be so many new things to see and do and it's a great chance for friends and family to visit so that you can show them around. I have also learned that people involved with the military know how difficult it is and are very supportive and so even if he is gone for training, you will never be alone and will always have someone to count on when you need it. I don't think you have a thing to worry about and enjoy the time that you are there, because it will go by too quickly!
