Yes, there are times that I think I’m crazy for choosing this life, when I could have it so much easier if I’d wanted. It’s about going for what you want, taking chances, falling down just to get back up and do it again.And if that’s what it takes to be with my soldier, then throw anything you want at me – I’ll get through. I hope this helped out or gave hope or comfort to those of you who are also dating a soldier and/or are in a similar situation to mine.***** Hi, my name is Jessica and I was the girlfriend and then the fiancé of an Army Ranger.My husband enlisted in July of 2003, only months after we had invaded Iraq.In the Spring of ’08, he joined the Army and went off to Ft Knox for basic training soon after. Everyone thought I was crazy for committing to someone who would be stationed halfway across the country, but he and I knew it was right. Sure, there are days that I’d rather not get out of bed, when I’m lonely and all I want to do is cry.Of course, I’m angry sometimes, and I get so sick of playing the waiting game and having no control while he’s deployed.To make matters worse, when he arrived from that first deployment, I was not there to greet him.
We had already been dating for a year and a half and a good amount of that time was long distance.
Eventually I decided that id stay with him, I went to his graduation, it was so nice to see him again. We spent a few weeks of leave together, and off he went to Germany. He and I always joke that our story would make such a good movie =] I met my soldier 5 years ago while hanging out with his older brother – my best friend at the time.
The day he left was so hard for me, and him as well. I’m 20 years old, and I’m the very proud girlfriend of a U. I was sitting in the den, watching everyone play video games while my soldier was on his computer listening to music next to me. I looked over at him, and we both broke out singing.
