I Love My Soldier

THIS IS KIND OF OFF TOPIC BUT DID ANY OF YOU FEEL WEIRD. I FEEL LIKE I DONT BELONG HERE; MAYBE  ITS BECAUSE I READ ALOT OF THE STORIES AND I FEEL FOR ALL OF YOU AND IT COULD BE BECAUSE I DO TALK TO MY HUSBAND ON A DAILY BASIS AND HE IS NOT IN IRAQ HE IS IN KOREA. ALTHOUGH I DONT REALLY WANT TO SEE MY PHONE BILL AT THE END OF THE MONTH. IF I COULD JUST KNOW WHAT ANY OF YOU THINK ABOUT THAT I WOULD APPRECIATE IT. THANK YOU

I agree NO matter where they are, when you are apart, we all feel the pain! Its hard not being physically able to be with your husband! Where in Korea is your husband? Mine is at Camp Carroll.

trust me, sugar... you belong here...<br />
you've been my biggest supporter in this endeavor we call military marriage, and without you i'd be lost half the time.<br />
plus, my husband is in new york for a little longer while i'm in oklahoma, so i should be the one saying i don't belong. haha.<br />
though he is off to afghanistan soon! blah!

Dont feel out of place!! You are still a army wife the same as the rest of us!!

I don't think you should feel any different.You still don't have him home with you. It is the same no matter where he is.

My husband was in korea for a year, and hes headed to Iraq this year, and I'll tell you, Its exactly the same. But in Iraq you don't have to worry about him hittin up the bars and such......

I kinda felt the same way my bf is in Iraq but I am one of the lucky ones who gets to talk to him everyday. At first I felt bad about complaining when some of the gals on here only get to talk to their men once every few weeks. But I still miss him the same. And I still worry. The ladies on here understand how I feel and where I'm coming from my friends and family cannot even begin to fathom how I feel.

I'm new here as well & live out of country & see my soldier every day too. Guess we're in the same boat all the way around! lol Either way, whether he is deployed or not, you are still an Army wife and that is that.

of course you belong here! Regardless of where your husband is, you are still an army wife who handles just as much as the rest of us do, just in different ways.

Also, we had an argument the other night and he actually said to me that he is an American Soldier and that his time is theirs now (Army). I told him that he was a father and a husband before a Soldier. It just made me so angry that he would through that in my face. Like I don't understand it's his job or anything.

Hi everyone, I am brand spankin new to this site. My husband is away at AIT in Virginia right now but it's been a year since I have seen him. I talk to him all the time though. Recently though we have had some problems. He hasn't communicated with me for about two months now. I have tried to email/call/text but he doesn't really talk to me anymore. I have been going to counceling to work on my own things but it doesn't help that he doesn't tell me how he is doing or feeling anymore. I just don't know what to do anymore and I am getting very frustrated with him. He graduates next month and then we are moving to Kansas. I am trying to decide if I should go or not because I don't want to keep having these issues (jealousy, lack of communication, regret, etc.) ...does anyone think this is normal man behavior or am I just reading him wrong?

Armywife, tthat says it all... and like carlslittlelady said... welcome to the family... I haven't been here long annd I pretty much feel like Im part of the family already. <br />

ARMY WIVES stick together and it's so true

i kinda feel weird about being here cause my husband isn't deployed hes just at boot camp. but then i thought about it and i miss him cause he isn't here with me everyday and every night so i think i should be here too.

Hello . How are you and welcome .Just a thought to share with you just like the soldiers have 2 families there teams/ bothers in service that they work/ fight/ and spend day to day with other than thier own personal families . You can have us as part of your "family " women girlfriends/ fiancees/wives that share the same pain , pride , joy, worries and concerns that you do no one ever said you cant have more than one family . So welcome to the family .

don't worry- my man is in texas and i'm in florida with my family-- we are thinking that he will go to iraq soon, but i miss him terribly as it is..i haven't seen him in four months and i have a one year old daughter and times get rough...............on the other hand.....we do talk every day and i love that closeness and sometimes i feel guilty cause i talk to him so much

you shouldnt feel wierd... like they have all said... gone is gone is gone no matter where they are... if he isnt there with you he is still somewhere else.. .and that means you miss him just like we miss ours... so its really not much different... i know how it is... and for a while i did get to talk to mine everyday and he would call me constantly... but that has slowly diminished... now im lucky to talk to him once every 2 weeks... and i havent heard his voice in like forever... but reguardless we still know how it feels to be without them for any amount of time and no matter where he is u still miss him... so feel free to message me if you need someone to talk to... we are all in the same boat... and there for we understand...

Hey u r an army wife that is hard enough. Talking can only go so much for u. Yeah hearing your husbands voice is great but not being with out your husband is really hard. my husband is in iraq right now and i talk to him through email and he even calls sometimes. No matter what you should never feel left out because us army wives stick together. yeah im a nerd

I live in the scrub in outback Oz, the most I see of Amy is a little training camp just out of town and an old RSL club. So I am more familiar with coyboy hats and hics. They still all stare, but hey, this is what we choose to be apart of.

thank you both for replying it makes me feel more welcome. I do miss him so much and i wish that i were with him now. this is all new to me. no one in my family was ever military so this is weird. I guess im still getting used to it. When you go on base do u ever feel like they are staring at you, what i mean by they i mean other soldiers or even the other wives that u see shoping?

ALL CAPITALS. You definately need to be here girl!<br />

I don't think you should feel weird or out of place or anything like that. Yeah, it's different, but your husband is still gone. Gone is gone is gone. You are welcome to be here. Just because you get to talk to your husband everyday doesn't mean that you don't miss him.
