I’ve talked about the whole wearing your SOs rank thing before, so I’m not going to get into that.
I hate when people are like “real love is loving someone in the military,” or the whole “real love is trading diamonds for dog tags.” So, that means that my friend’s marriage isn’t going to work out…
This. I’m also kind of leery of the folks that say “real men wear dog tags.” Being in the Military doesn’t give you an instant superhero macho man card. I’ve known some real jerks, wimps, and skeevs that have been in the Military, and I know some amazing, kind, fantastic men that are civilians.
A blog for those of us who wait by the mailbox, long for that phone call, and know the agony of separation.
I've seen the sites for the Army husbands and wives, but where's the one for the girlfriends and boyfriends? The ones that love the men and women in uniform but must stay behind? We are here. And we are strong.
