I am 18 and my boyfriend has recently joined the Army. He is in BCT at the moment. When he gets done with BCT and AIT, I wanted to see if he wanted to get married that way we could live together. We plan on living on base. My question is will they…Continue
haha am I the first international member? woohoo!!! XD I love this page alot. I read the invitation message on FB last night and I joined right after I read it. lol thanks for the welcome and creating this awesome page!!! <3 :-D
Thanks for the warm welcome. My husband got back from a 7-month deployment in october and I just am thankful everyday that he's still here with me safe and unharmed. I hated the lonely nights, never putting down your phone to make sure you never missed a call, watching others with their significant others and wishing you could just hold him, tearing up when you finally hear his voice and read his letters (and saving all of them)... it takes a special kind of woman to love a man in the military and fortunately there are a good few of us out there.
Thanks again, and I hope and pray that your boyfriend comes home safe and sound :)
Hi Alee, and thanks again for the welcome as well as creating this community for us. Yes, like many family members, I have been through multiple deployments. I don't have the answers, or solutions; but if I can share what I have been through and let just one person out there know that they are not alone, then it is worth it. We are all together in this, no matter what branch, and sharing can only make us stronger.
Well, to be completely honest, I'm not sure how I get through them. There's no such thing as getting use to it. Some days are great and others completely suck but each day is a new day and we make the best of it. I don't dwell on the fact that he's gone but I also allow myself to break down and cry if I need to. I try to stay busy and keep in a routine. I have a to-do list of all the things I need to or I'd like to complete before he gets back so it keeps me motivated. Every deployment has been a different experience for me so I handle it accordingly.
