happy army girlfriend

Military relationships don’t get enough credit. You’re in love with someone who you see for a few days out of the whole year. You don’t always know if the other person is safe, you can’t always talk a lot, and there are a lot of nights of crying yourself to sleep. You can never get your hopes up, make any plans too far ahead, or go for a visit because of money issues. But you’re so in love with that person that you wouldn’t trade this life for the world.

I finally understood what true love meant…love meant that you care for another person’s happiness more than your own, no matter how painful the choices you face might be.
