airforce girlfriend

Well-intentioned questions:

“When will he get leave next?”

“Where will he be stationed next?”

“Will he be able to come back for my wedding/Christmas/birthdays/holidays/anniversary?”

“When will you get to see each other again?”

What’s great about love letters are that someone writes how much they love you in a single sheet of paper that they wouldn’t say in person so then you can read over and over again just like falling in love with them over again without needing them to be there physically with you in your mind while reading this sheet of paper you can hear their voice reading it to you and its like a part of them will always be there with you because they expressed their true feelings for you in a letter

You don’t know but I’m the girl that drags herself out of bed every morning so that he will be proud of her when he comes home. I’m the girl who lies in bed longing for him to be lying next to me. I’m the girl who sits quietly in class because all I can think about is the next moment that he’ll be in my arms again. You don’t know, but I’m the girl with a million things to say, but none will come out without the thought of him. I’m the girl who checks my phone every five seconds just to make sure I haven’t missed his call. You tell me you know how I feel and that you understand what I’m going through; you have no idea. What you don’t realize is that I understand the true meaning of not only love, but of longing and anticipation. I am one of the girls who will make friends with complete strangers for only they can even begin to understand what I am going through. You don’t understand that I picture his face everywhere I go and that he is with me in everything I do. You tell me that you support the troops; I tell you, I’m in love with one.

Married to the military

“Why did you get married so young?” I hear it ALL THE TIME.

Being married to the military is a completely different world in general. My husband and I, married at 21, have discussed why in the military culture we all get married “so young”. At 21, these men (and women!) already have more responsibility than some of our friends will have in their entire lives. It forces them to grow up— and in growing up they settle down and realize what is important to them. Same goes for the dedicated military spouse. Committing to a relationship that most of the time is long distance, and ALL of the time is a huge stress, is a very mature thing to do. The 20 year old military couple can not be compared to others— we are a breed of our own. Families and friends will not always understand that. That is why we become such good friends with each other as military spouses. We are family ❤️

Merrily,
