Poem: Army Girlfriends
My wife is at AIT, and I was poking around the web looking for poems to make her feel good. I came across one that is damn good for any man to give to his girl before a deployment. Here it is

Army Girlfriends

(Army wives are remarkable souls, but they were once girlfriends....
this is for those who have not made it yet as a wife,
but still has to deal and feel all the trials and tribulations
of the army man's life...)

Everyone hears of the Army Wife,
Her trials, sacrifices, and devoted life.
She is strong, she is brave, and she is loving indeed,
Standing by her man in his time of need.

But what of others in a similar situation,
Who have made being an Army girlfriend their main occupation?
They suffer many of the same trials and many of the same fears
Without the security of future years.

Will there be peace or will there be war?
You try to be hopeful but it's hard to ignore.
The world seems to be falling apart
When to a soldier you have given your heart.

Your love runs too deep to escape from it now.
You hope to be together somewhere, somehow,
When his duty is over and your life can begin.
The many heartbreaks and times you did weep
When he made promises the Army couldn't keep.
But you have learned so much together and come so far.

His job is ever-changing and takes him far away.
You think of him always and pray every day--
For his safety, his courage, and his love for you
That he may remain steadfast, loyal, and ever true.

Nothing is sure and nothing is set in stone...
Except that he will leave again and you will be alone,
Holding tightly to your dreams of a future together,
When you will at last be able to say the word "forever."

Tears have become anything but a stanger.
They fall freely in sadness, loneliness, and anger.
But he will never know because you will never tell.
You've learned to hide your misery only too well.

A few years? That doesn't sound like so long.
The letters and phone calls keep your love going strong,
Even when they are few and far between,
In them, his love for you can clearly be seen.

So keep your chin up and a smile on your face.
He is protecting your freedom and keeping you safe.
His heart is strong and his love is true
And don't ever forget that he is missing you too!

that blow man.

hmmm since I have been in the Army, I lost a few of them. Someone on a deployment said it is not the deployment rather the fact the girl is weak that the relationship ended. I will agree with him on that one.
