I'm trying to send a care package to my boyfriend but all he gave me was an address of his base in Afghanistan...no APO address...I need help figuring out how to fill out the APO priority shipping box...I have no clue what I'm doing and I just want to send him his package. Please HELP ME!!
Hey everyone! So in my free time I write songs/poems and I wrote this poem about Tyler who is currently deployed over in Afghanistan untill January. I thought I would share it with y'all because I feel like we have all felt this way at some point or another. Hoe you like it! :)

Can I just say, I love my man. No matter what life throws at us we handle it, he keeps me strong and is my hero, and this weekend, he told me I was his hero... I asked why, and he said cuz "You handle all of lifes BS, with a smile and manage to keep a positive outlook." I am thinking to myself, uh, no thats why your my hero!

My boyfriend of 2 years left for basic on March 12. We've been apart for a few months before but not without texting, calling, &skyping. I've been writing him tons of letter and he does write back thank god but I still feel so lonely. I can go from proud and happy to hysterical crying in about .3 seconds. Any advice to a brand new army girlfriend?

It has definitely been a long day. Michael's ceremony was at around 10:30 AM and he didn't leave for Chicago until noon.
It didn't really hit me until he called me this evening.
I'm so incredibly proud of him. Like, I don't think he has any clue how proud.
I've hard car troubles and I'm definitely going to be on the struggle bus financially for awhile.
How I'm feeling: I feel weird. Like that "on the verge of crying" feeling just constantly. I'm doing my…Continue
Depending on when Michael graduates A school, I'm thinking of flying down and staying at a hotel nearby for 2-3 weeks. Then, I can go with him when he gets his orders & help him get situated.
A hotel for that long is about $900 & a one way flight to San Antonio is about $200. It's going to be pricey, but oh so worth it!

FOREVER AND ALWAYS
The memories flow into my head like a waterfall into a river.
The ripples grow bigger and bigger, but then they fade.
They seem like they would go on forever.
One thing could make it all go away.
The sweet things being said,
The butterflies I…Continue

Well today marks one week until I drive Michael up to Indianapolis and drop him off at MEPS. When he ships out, I will not see him again for 8 (or more) weeks. Then his A school is only 9 weeks and I can go visit him, which has me very excited. After that he will get stationed somewhere (fingers crossed for somewhere with a beach!) and I will still be here finishing school.
For the past few months I've been terribly miserable at the idea of staying behind for my education. In no way…Continue
Patrick was kind of depending on deployment. He really didn't have much of a plan B, as far as I know. But now we know that the 25th Infantry Division will not be deploying until after his contract is up. Assuming he doesn't reenlist, he will never deploy.
With him being his usual busy self, coupled with his phone apparently not working properly and not having internet access in his room, I haven't gotten to talk to him at all since he gave me the news nearly a week ago.

So, I haven't been on here in a while but lately things have been getting really tough. My sailor is in his last month of A school and soon he'll be coming home. I've heard the last month is the hardest but, for me it just can't seem to go by fast enough. I really just want him to be home already...especially since lately I feel like he's really distracted when it comes to him and I. I know that he's really busy and that hes in class most of the day so we barely get to talk but, sometimes…Continue
Hey girls! I haven't been on in a while due to Kyle being home, but now that he is back overseas...I'm back! We are currently living in Oceanside, but there is serious talk about relocating to Texas (Austin Area.) I've never even BEEN to Texas, and am just looking for any info you've got to offer. We're going to visit in May to check out homes, and get a feel of the area. He would be working for a great company, and I know it would be a smart financial move for our future family. If any of…Continue

I'm coming to the realization that I'm losing my mind.
It hasn't been confirmed, but Patrick may be deploying this summer. I don't know how long it'd be for. It would be his first deployment.
The only person in my life that really gets me is my best friend's mom because her husband was in the Air Force. Early in their mariage, they were moving back and forth from the US to Germany. Even after my best friend moved out of her parent's house, I still go to her mom for comfort. She…
