I Am A Military Girlfriend

My fiance just left today for South Carolina to start basic, He is in they U.S Army. He is a E-3 PFC. I miss him dearly. Standing at the airport watching him walk away was THE hardest thing I've ever done. I already miss him so much. I love him more than anything. His basic will last until the middle-end of January then will go straight to his job training. I'm trying to stay strong for him, I know he's coming back and he just left today but it's still heartbreaking. I am always fighting back tears it seems. We went from seeing each other everyday and when we weren't with each other we would still talk or text. I can't wait for him to come back. Waiting to receive his letters and a phone call. I am a military girlfriend. I hold no formal recognition with the powers that be I am at the bottom of the chain. I hold no Military ID card; I am not a dependent or a parent. The man I love may face unspeakable dangers and I am at the mercy of those who possess this recognition for news. I understand this and accept this. I have promised to be here for you upon your return no matter how long you are away. They may say I am insane for making such a commitment, but I hold onto our promises and have faith that you will come home safe. I know well that my love for you fuels you in the worst of times. There is no ring on my finger to symbolize our commitment, though I love you no less for it. I hope every day that you will be able to call because a simple 30-second phone call can bring the greatest spectrum of emotions smiling with tears in my eyes from so much joy and pain. My relationship is based on a brief communication where I love you and I’m okay speaks more than volumes and gives me the strength to keep going. I take no moment spent together for granted. I hold onto every touch, caress, kiss, and every word. I have memorized the feel of your skin, your smell, the sound of your voice and I play it over and over in my mind so that I will not forget. I cry myself to sleep some nights because missing you hurts so badly, but wake up the next morning, brush myself off and start a new day.

I love my solider.

Oh well thats great! my high school didnt offer that. just a question out of curiosity i didnt mean for it to offend you if it did.

How is he a PFC if he didn't graduate basic yet?
