Unofficial “Milso” Playlist

I’ve seen multiple “milso” playlist and they are all old & usually only one genre. I’m only sharing one that I made. Its a list of relatable of songs that I listen to when I’m in that funk. This is also probably good for Long Distance Relationships in general! Bolded ones are personal favorites!

  2. Gym Class Heroes : Back Home
  3. Beyonce : At Last
  4. Bryson Tiller : Exchange  
  5. Carina Round : For Everything a Reason 
  6. Ciara : Jackie (for when you need a boost)
  7. Daniela Andrade : Thinkin Bout You
  8. Daughter : Numbers
  9. Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros : Home
  10. Florence & The Machines : Over The Love
  11. India Arie : The Truth
  12. Jaden Smith : PCH 
  13. Janine & The Mixtape : Hold Me

God Bless this woman. It can’t be said any better then that.

People who romanticize military relationships know nothing about them. There is nothing romantic about being apart more than being together. There’s nothing romantic about missing birthdays, holidays, births and special events. There’s nothing romantic about worrying non stop through a deployment. There’s nothing romantic about crying when you miss their call. I don’t do it because “it’s romantic.” I do it because I love him.

Reblog if you’re a ldr/milso blog.

I would like to follow more of you. :)

Have a wonderful day. xoxo

I’m so glad to have such a beautiful person to spend my life with. Through all the hardships and distance put between us we always overcome the obstacles together. Our strength and love is unshakeable and I know we can make it through anything. I’m walking into this with no doubt we will be Ok. I have such an amazing wife. I couldn’t be more thankful. I love you so much, baby. Thank you for living this life with me.

Posts that will get you cyber-annihilated in the milso tag

This is a public service announcement for all those that post in the milso tag. I cringe every time I see one of the “unspoken rules” violated because I know these Tumblr milsos are going to go after the poor person that didn’t think before they posted. Personally, I don’t care what you post, but TRUST me: a lot of these broads do and they will go after your ass as if though you personally set out to offend them.

So, here are the top 10 things that will get you cyber-annihilated in the milso tag:
1. Posting pictures or screen shots of your personal information (address, phone number, etc.).
2. Actually, posting anyone’s personal information can get you in deep shit around here.
3. Being whinny or competitive about missing your SO.
4. Actually, complaining in general is not well received.
5. OPSEC and PERSEC violations (dates, locations, times, countdowns, etc.). I thought this one would upset more folks, but it only upsets a random few.
6. Being too proud of being a milso is a big no-no. You want to post a selfie of your “Marine Girlfriend” or “Army Wife” shirt? THINK AGAIN. You will get told to get a life and stop being such a stereotypical milso.
7. GoFundMe accounts for your wedding, visiting your SO, or for anything that isn’t a true medical emergency.
8. Engagement pics (or any professional pics) of you & your SO in uniform. People really seem to get angry with this one. Oh, and don’t you dare use “Old Glory” as a prop, blanket, or any of the sort: they find that HIGHLY distasteful and disrespectful. But wedding pictures of them in uniform is just fine?
9. Posting screen shots of sappy messages between you & your SO. Though it’s cute to you, others apparently hate it and it makes them want to punch you.
10. Basically anything that you post will annoy or upset someone–so, post what you want because you’re a big girl or boy AND it’s your damn blog, but be ready to have random strangers rip you a new one.

Finally, I don’t care what ANY milso says, they were once that nerdy girlfriend that wore proudly their milso swag and if you weren’t: you did something else that was embarrassing & stupid. Everyone goes through that stage, then you realize it’s silly and move on. Luckily for me, that stage happened before Tumblr existed ha.

Military SO's!

Allow me the opportunity to introduce myself, my name is Brittany. I am an enrollment advisor at Career Step. Career Step is teamed up with MyCaa to provide military spouses with free training programs so that they have the opportunity to find a career that fits their lifestyle.

When my husband was deployed I took to Tumblr, I spoke to complete strangers that were going through the same thing that I was. During that time I made friends that I have never met, but just understood. I want to say thank you by extending this information onto all Milso’s! 

I would like to ask if you stumble across this post that you share my Tumblr with your friends, family, Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr. I would also like to encourage you to check out my page, though it is just beginning I want to know about you! Please flood my ask/submit with your story, what you are looking for in a career, your deployment stories (what got you through), anything military related. I will then post your story or answer any questions you may have about the program.

Lets get to know each other :)

Is it just me or...

are there times when all you want to do is look at military/milso related stuff 24/7 and then next thing you know you’re telling yourself “If I see one more military/milso thing I’m going to murder someone?” because I have most definitely been the second mood all day long. 

When things get hard don’t give up; try your best to fight for what you love and want.
