Has Anyone Asked You This???
I've just read a post where these strong women who love their Military Man have been asked by their friends and/or family members questions like, "Why would you date someone who is in the Military?" or "Why would you be with someone who is going to be gone for long periods of time? "Why would you put yourself through the heartache, the worry?" I was in complete shock! That's horrible and sickening! That is like asking one of your friends who is dating a Firefighter, or Police Officer, or a freaking garbage truck driver why they would do that to themselves!!!! I am SO proud to be the girlfriend of a Soldier, and that pride just adds to the love and respect that I feel for him. I am honored and feel priviledged to stand beside someone who is selfless enough to lay his life on the line in service to our country. WHO ARE THESE PEOPLE???? I have to tell you, if someone did have the huevos to ask me that question, I'd probably quickly forget that I'm a lady - I mean my love jumps out of perfectly good aircraft and finds strategic ways to blow things up for a living.... WHAT IS SEXIER THAN THAT?? :) Have you been asked questions like this? How did you handle the situation? What did you say/do? I'm curious!
