The Decision Of A Lifetime...

My name is Krystal and My boy friend Matt had been thinking about joining the army for a long time now. He finally decided recently to meet with a recruiter and get the necessary papers filled out as well as tests taken in order to be enlisted. None of it felt real until he told me that he was gonna start basic training this fall. We have been together over half a year, I know this is not long, but I'm already very sure hes the one I want to spend my life with. I know its gonna be hard to have him gone for such lengths at a time. I can hardly stand being away from him for three days, let alone what I know is ahead of me. At first I was hoping he would change his mind, but now that I think about it, I'm so proud of him. I am proud to be an Army Girlfriend, and I wanna do whatever I can to love and support him in his decision. Every girl wishes for a knight in shining armor, but I believe I have even better....a soldier in camo. <3
I love you Matt..

hey! Congrats on becoming an army girlfriend even though it's not a girls dream to become one. I became a army girlfriend nine months ago and i have been with my boyfriend for 10 and a half months about. Don't worry about anything right now until he gets to basic training. Just spend as much time as you can with him :D Everything will be ok. if you need anything you can always message me. :D Good luck and stay Army strong.

Thank you so much. I always knew that I wasn't the only one going through this. In fact I'm just one of many but this site is so amazing. I feel so much support from so many people. At the moment there's not many people I can turn to who would understand but thank you again.

your welcome. I am always here to help. don't be afraid to message me even if it is just to talk. it's good to have girls as friends who go through the exact same thing. It has been helping me a lot too. I was scared out of my mind when i first became an army girlfriend. It takes time to get to know the girls. You will be ok. I promise. It sounds scary and nerve wreaking, but you have to think about the outcome of this all, when he comes home from basic it will be rewarding to the both of you. When he goes away though, keep yourself busy at all times and have your phone on you at all times and last thing, don't forget to write to him every day. :D Good luck!!! if you need anything, message me :D
