I Think We've All Felt Like This At One Point:)

I found this on a Marine gf facebook page. I LOVED it<3

Marine Girlfriend Boot Camp Statement:

I feel like I’m in boot camp
Boot Camp for Marine Girlfriends
I’m learning how to become self sufficient
I’m learning my true feelings for my man
I’m learning how to sleep on my own

To not eat, to not sleep, to be deprived of what was “normal living” for me
I’m being questioned and learning how to answer the hardest ones of all.
How do you do it without him?
Why do you put yourself through this?
Why do you stay with him?

My love, my body, and my mind are going through rigorous training.
My heart will face a Crucible
In the end I will come out a Marine Girlfriend
One that knows her duties, commitment, and place in the Marine Corps.

I will learn how to engage in conversation with complete strangers.
I will learn to use and be patient with the United States Post Office.
I will learn how to train my mind, not to break down every second of the day
I will do all of this in 13 weeks, miles away from my man.

And on his graduation day, I too will have accomplished something.
I will have stood behind him and stood there for myself.
I will come out with honor, courage, sacrifice,
and above all commitment to my Marine.

This is great! going on my Sticky notes widget on my screen :D

loved this. thanks.

This is so true, how sweet :)

I LOVEEE this!

That is right!! i respect all the military wives out there but you have to be a girlfriend first to become a wife, at least recognize us a bit. we all want what's best for the men in our lives.

I know right! Officially we don't have a place since we're just girlfriends and not wives, but I think we all have the intention of becoming one! It sucks not getting recognized, but the way I see it if my boo knows that I'm in it for the long run and I love him endlessly then idc if I have no place in the USMC. :)

this is nice!! when i see my bf im gonna tell him that im a Marine too, im going through 10 months of boot camp lol :-) but i have to ask this, what IS our place in the Marine Corps? everyone makes it seem like we dont matter much :-/
