I've noticed there's nothing like the support, stories, care and commaderie between women who are married to men in the military. Deployments, field rotations, training, long hours, and unexpected changes are all apart of our lives. We know how to clean a uniform, the difference between "civilian time" and "military time" and an unrelenting list of abbreviations (PT's, ACU's, B CO, the list goes on forever). My husband was deployed for 14 monthes last year and my family and friends just couldn't seem to say or do the right thing for me when I was having a hard time...but Army wives I had just met could take a look at me and know where I was coming from and say just what I needed to hear. Most of the friends I've made in the military I have nothing else in common with except that we love our soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines. So, if you're in love with a military man, join us! Share your stories, funny and sad, ask for advice and give it when you've got it.

Well, here we go. I'm 18. I work as a secretary at an employee benifit company. And my fiance is in the army, we've been engaged since december and we've been together little over a year, we've been close friends for the past 3 years. He just deployed overseas a few weeks ago. We spent his last two weeks home together everyday. It was just like knowing he was leaving me, made my love for him grow and his for me because he asked me to marry him 2 days after christmas, 2 days before he left. Now I'm waiting 9-12 months to be with the man I love. I come from a military family. My father and only brother served. My brother still does. I know all about loved ones leaving and not knowing if you're going to see thier faces again. But it feel so much more intense now. Like, at night i can literatly feel the emptiness beside me. I thought I was doing okay but as the days keep going on the nights are getting lonlier and lonlier, I just need some support with all this so feel free to ask me what you want, just start a conversation anythingg
