CAMO - Connecting All Military Others
I was wanting to know if anyone else is having issues with their boyfriend/fiance's mom?
Andrew(my fiance) and I are getting married on June 16, 2012 and I feel as if she's not going to let go once we are married. Andrew and I so far have gotten his cell phone off of his parents plan, and once we're married our medical insurance will come off both of our parents. We had marriage counseling because in the state of Tennessee you have to before you get married or else…Continue
This is a letter I decided to write to a man I never got to meet, but has helped change my life for the better. This man is Patrick's dad, who unexpectedly passed away 10 years ago today.
Patrick was 10 years old, and his sister Caitlin was 13. I can't imagine losing one of my parents being that young.
I've been emotional since I found out that the anniversary was today. I told Patrick I cried when I found out via a picture of the gravestone that Caitlin posted on facebook. He said…
Remember, this is a temporary situation! As fast as the time flew by leading up to this, the time will pass just as swiftly getting through it. We may only be weeks in, but soon we will be months down and wondering where the time went.

Just wondering I'm going through a lot lately, medical wise, school and grade wise, missing my fiance and so on. I am stressed beyond belief and i'm keeping myself busy... But I wanna know how you girls control your stress. How do you ladies handle everything? I mean i'm staying strong but I'm soooooooo close to just breaking down about EVERYTHING and I need help because its probably not good to be so stressed out... I could use some advice... Please feel free to chat ladies.. <3
Having a really rough day today. Don't know if it has to do with it being exactly 2 weeks since I last saw him, or that our 10 month anniversary is this Sunday. Or maybe it's my high school graduation next month that he won't be able to attend, or the recent realization that I don't even know what YEAR it will be when I can be with him again.
Whatever it is, there's a heaviness in my chest that only gets heavier when I think about him.
So I sat down and wrote out the…Continue
Here is the article for Marine Corps Times that CamoConnect was featured in! Please help CamoConnect and spread the word! :)
My fiance is currently in New Jersey and he is deploying to Afghanistan at the beginning of May. This is his first deployment and my first deployment with him. I dont really know what to expect. Im just looking for some feedback/advise on how its gonna be. The best ways to get through it. Even some of your guys stories about what you went through or what helped you get through the deployment. Or if any of you are going through a deployment right now maybe we help each other!! I am not…Continue
I feel like I don't necessarily fit in nor will I fit in with the military wife/family thing.
My fiance and I are to wed in less than a month when he comes home, he is currently stationed in Hawaii. However, I will remain in our hometown of Columbus while he goes back to his base.
I will not relate with the whole living on or near to the base.
I will not relate to having a whole bunch of Army wives as friends since there's no base here.
We will soon enter a…Continue
-The only arguments Patrick and I have are over stupid things. They're so stupid, they're not even really arguments. Usually it's weather or not an actor was in another movie. Every single time we've had this kind of 'argument', I've won.
After proving to him that OshKosh B'Gosh was in fact a clothing company, this took place-
Him: How come I can never be right?
Me: Because I'm always right. It's time you learned this.
Him: Yeah, but never?

I am finally coming to the end of a LONG road here. Since September 2010, my husband has been deployed, and then in a medical hold pattern on the other side of the country. During this time, I have had 4 days with him, and those were also technically work days for him also. Within the next couple of weeks (not mentioning exact days or dates :D), he will be home on a permanent basis - apart from occasional official meetings and trips for medical treatments. In this 24th year in the Army,…Continue
Cant say enough how much i love my military man. We were high school sweethearts before this life AND NOW, we go through the notions of this crazy lifestyle because of the love that binds us.
Im still adjusting to the once a week calls and the weekly letter i get from him-not being able to drive around the corner to his house or call and harass him when im bored. All the things average couples take for granted, I miss on a constant basis, but I have to stay strong-not just for my…Continue
I am having a really hard time with this deployment right now! This is our first and we have a 6 month old son and I stay at home with him.... I felt like i was doing so good and first couple of months flew by and now i feel like I've hit a wall that I can't seem to get past... i keep telling myself it will be ok but the lack of communication makes it hard, and when he does talk to me ( on fb chat or message only) he seems so distant and just short i dunno how to explain it, but he talks to…Continue
A relationship is not about
the frequency of your visits
or how often you are around.
A relationship is not about
the number of texts per day
So Since January My friend Amy And I have been filling out and returning job applications. And FINALLY The last time we were returning our job applications, We had our Interview RIGHT there, Together.
