He was an ass, didn’t say anything, he said what up then turned back around to face Kalea, so I continued to walk in and was like what a asshole and never thought about him until like 2 years later.

Your girls may not get why you don’t want to go out because you’re waiting on an overseas phone call. They live their lives by the ideals of responsibility and faithfulness. You may not think it now, but while you’re dating an Army man, weird things can get to you. I want to eventually marry my soldier and he is my world.

Your guys may not get why you can’t hang until three in the morning anymore. For someone they care about to dump on those ideals is like a kick in the gut with a steel-toed boot. I used to love the miniseries Band of Brothers, and would occasionally turn it on in the background if I I was working. This will probably be true for you, and even your guy, as well. I will not see him again until January when his Basic and his AIT is finished. My car is now decked out in Army logos and I’ve written on my car windows that I’m a proud Army Girlfriend.

I’m sorry I wasn’t going to somewhere far away with no car of my own not really knowing anybody for some guy that I just really talk to on the phone and plus I wasn’t that interested for real so I didn’t go.

Right after that he enlisted into the Army and we lost touch.

I had heard them all talk about him here and there telling stories that they shared with him, but still I never gave it a second thought.

His best friend kept telling Bubba about me and what we were doing, what I was doing, how I was doing and this started and December (I found all this a lot later) and then that Feb we were all over at Rachel’s place having game night and one of his friends was talking to Bubba on the phone and then his friend called me over there and said that there was someone on the phone that wanted to talk to me so I was like ok. It was the first time I had talked to him in years!

But there was one time I went to see him at a friend’s place he was at and had called me to come over and I was SO nervous I dragged one of my friends with me and when we got there I think I may had said 2 whole words to him the whole time. that’s one thing bubba and I can do is talk and talk and talk.

But when it came to face to face talking I would chicken out get real shy I dunno why though, but then soon after that he moved up to South Carolina with his parents and really one of the last times we talked on the phone he wanted me to come up to one of the beaches up there for spring break with all his friends but I declined.

It’s making sure to text him good night before he bunks in. Each second I spent apart from my boyfriend makes each moment together twice as sweet. I always imagined dating someone who would go to college and I would see on some weekends and over the holidays. Maybe the mail screwed it up, or the Army hasn’t sent them out yet. I am 22 yrs old and from the great state of Alabama. We’ve been together for 7 months now, so you could say that I’m still green at being an army girlfriend.
