Missing My Soldier

Hey everyone! My story?

Im the girlfriend of a wonderful soldier who was recently deployed to Iraq. He left me on Feb 16th and he is gone for a whole year! We've been friends for about 6 years but made our relationship official this New Years.  So, we've only spent a little time together before he left. He has been deployed several times during our friendship but this time it's kind of different. I am so in love and I miss him so!

He is stationed in NC, but I'm a Jersey girl...the plan is to either have him try to get stationed here or, if he can't, I'll be moving down there. I've never lived outside of NJ, but I think I can do this for him. I KNOW I can do this for him. From there, the plan is to get married and start a family. I'm excited about that and I can't wait until this year is over.


I guess this is my story and I came on here because it's been so hard trying to get used to him being gone, and I figured maybe I'll meet others in similar situations. Kind  of like an army wife/girlfriend support group.
