It was such a special time. I admire ur stories… My boyfriend is station in Sudan. None of my friends really understand. It was ridiculous that I had driven him there in hopes of learning more about what he was about to go through but all I got was a long hour in the sun with a 1 year old and 3 month old. The day you get to see them on graduation will make it all worth it. I am happy that he will. I felt like I was destroying any good we had and I decided to leave before any chance of a relationship was completely lost.
It was hard to see him leave again. My hope is that my boys do not acquire military tactics and behavior for use at home. If he makes it to the army he plans to get engaged when he comes back from basic and then get married as soon as we can after that. It is just the encouragement I needed this week. You should try to see the good in every situation. Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment and share something special about your life. Work on projects or set a goal for yourself and focus on it.
I moved 5000 miles away from everyone I love to be with my one and only. Should we set a date and hope the army lets him have leave? The date just came up so fast and I honestly just feel so lost and I have no idea what I should do with myself. I understand this and accept this. I am also a Military girlfriend. It can be a rough, lonely life but like you said, you got to put those big girl panties on and push through. Girls can get away with the headband.
Out of everyone I know no one understands my feelings and they all tell Me I am crazy! I tracked my son by his debit card. My man is in the army and is based in Washington. On top of that, you have to manage things on the homefront by yourself. My Husband is back to me just the way it was when we first met. I think spouses from other countries are widely accepted here in the military community.
Wow I relate to this so much! It may come with a heightened sense of patriotism, too, when you begin your relationship with a military member, or it may completely ruin it altogether — it varies from person to person. How is that then rewarding for the wife or the child? So, I am truly thankful for your words. Bless all those who love and are loved. He injured his foot in basics so he was in medical for about 5 months and has recently gone back to basics. Its hard, cause i dont know anything about the military life.
So make the best of it and enjoy the adventure. Bf is gone a lot doing training, which I can only assume is leading up to a deployment pretty soon here. He is currently still in boot camp, but we found out he will be stationed in Seattle, Washington. This is the first time he is being deployed while with me. My father was active duty for over thirty years and I grew with deployments grew to understand them. Find those people on and and on the SpouseBuzz.
I try to read as much as i can and this website really already helped me. As a husband, the pay was love, trust, support, intense friendship and so many other awesome things. Hey, i just read your comment and feel so related. In March 2012, he came to my house for his Spring Break — and also as an apology for not being able to go to my prom. You are supporting him by keeping strong and believing in him.
Ive been trying to enjoy any and every moment I can that I get to spend with him , but in the back of my mind, I keep thinking that that deployment date is now one day closer than it was yesterday. Great Post, and so true! The man I love may face unspeakable dangers and I am at the mercy of those who possess this recognition for news. I have to say for me, the people in my life made an impact in me getting through the past two months. As a mother that is the worst feeling. I mean, he gave up a regular college experience, safety and waking up next to yours truly so that he could protect us every single day. One day I hope I am lucky enough to sit down and have a cup of coffee with one of those military girlfriends, who email me each week genuinely seeking help.
