Lost Without Him!

Me and my boyfriend have been together 6 months now, 2 of those he has been in iraq.  nobody in my family understands what i am going through.  I love him so much.  This is my first experience with deployement.  He has been deployed 3 other times prior to this one.  I have no idea what to expect.  i had gotten used to talking to him every day and now i get 2-3 emails a week.  Could anybody please tell me what to expect.  I have absolutely no idea.  Please!

I really appreciate that you took time to read it. It's tough being an army gf, but you can do it.

thank you so much for giving me the address to your blog. it says everything that i am feeling. and i totally agree with the army wife thing. he was stationed at fort carson, co before he was deployed, so i flew out to see him before he left. his co-officers were females, and they werent too kind to me either. i really enjoyed the things you had to say, i look forward to reading more.

I haven't been through a deployment, but basic training is similar because you don't speak for months and you only get letters when your soldier has time to write and when the mail hasn't been misplaced. Everyone here knows what you are going through (or they are going to know soon.) I could write a whole slew of what to expect, but I really suggest that you read my blog on being an army girlfriend. I wrote all the articles myself, so it all comes from firsthand experience. Also, if there is a post you would like to see added, or a question you want answered, feel free to let me know and I will put it up for you. Best of luck and stay strong.<br />
