This is my Fiancee (Kyle) & I (Elizabeth) the day he got home from his first deployment on December 16, 2011. This was the most happiest day of my life. Late night Video Chats and long messages through email is what kept us going. We been together for 1 year & 7 months. and still going strong. We are getting married this summer. I love my Soldier more than anything in this world.

I usually just tell people to wear almost Business Casual to graduation, nothing to conservative but also something that shows your personality.

I answered:

Great advice!

There is no question in my mind that my soldier is who I am supposed to be with,we have been dating for a year and a half now, he is 20 and I am 18, the first ten months of our relationship were spent both as civilians, and I recently drove down to GA (from Ohio) to see him graduate his basic training. He is now in AIT. we have never been shy about our feelings for each other, and I have a feeling he will be proposing soon, I know I'll say yes, and I can't wait!

I answered:

Exciting!

My boyfriend is graduating AIT at Fort Eustis and I'm not sure how to dress. I know I should dress to impress and since I'm in the Navy (Have not left for basic) I want to make sure i represent the Navy as well. How do i dress??

I answered:

Not being bitchy, but you technically are not in until you graduate. But anyways, just dress in whatever you think looks nice and is comfortable yet still conservative-ish since you’ll be on a military base. Some people wear sweatshirts and jeans. You honestly don’t need to dress up unless you want to. There really isn’t a dress code besides being respectful of the rules on base. Not a lot of skin showing, nothing raggedy, has to fit well, nothing gang affiliated or inappropriate, etc.

Scotty and I had been dreading that day in September when we would be separated for 9 weeks. Days were long and hard and I never thought I’d be able to get through the separation but every letter written and received made it a little more bearable. Then the day came in November when we’d be together again! The day was perfect. We spent every minute together up until we had to part ways again… Everyday is always a little better than the last. Scotty is my whole world, I’m so proud of him and there isn’t anyone else I’d rather be on this journey with. I love him with all of my heart and can’t wait to be with him again

This sexy thing right here is my EVERYTHING. He is my best friend, my other half, my whole heart, and the love of my life. He is the reason for my happiness. He can always put a smile on my face no matter how far away he is stationed. I don’t know what I would do without him. I am so proud of him and of everything he has accomplished and continues to accomplish everyday. 
I will see you in a year baby❤ Be safe and hurry home to me. I love you more than words can explain.

This is the text between my Marine and I before he went to MCT. Its an old text, but it makes me believe that we can do this. We&#8217;ve had a complicated relationship for the past three years, but I love him so much. We weren&#8217;t together when he went to bootcamp cause we had broken up, but since I&#8217;ve been in college and he&#8217;s been a Marine, we&#8217;ve realized that we belong together. So we&#8217;re starting over. The distance does suck, but I&#8217;m so glad I have him to call mine. He&#8217;s worth every second of waiting, cause those moments when I get to see him again make it all worth while. It helps that his family is Military orientated, cause I have people who understand relationships like ours. Semper Fi.

This is Eric. My best friend, my soldier, my everything. And this is our story.
Eric was one of the first people I met and hung out with once I moved to Maryland. Through a mutual friend the three of us went out to get sushi for lunch the weekend after Otakon (a local and HUGE anime convention here on the east coast). The three of us ate and had a good time. Since I was so new to the area I was very nervous about meeting anyone, let alone a guy. After we parted ways, I went on home, to have him add me on facebook a week later. Come to find out, he got food posining after eating the Sushi with us, and blamed it all on me. This flirtatious bickering lasted for a few months, before I started to have feelings for him.
He told me he was deploying in March, and that he did not want to get together with someone as he had been cheated on in the past (while he was in Basic training, his girlfriend at the time cheated on him and dumped him before he graduated). I understood his concerns and told him that it was fine and that I would still be here for him as a friend.
It was October and New York Comic Con rolled around, and I was feeling very down that entire weekend. And although he had drill that same weekend, he was messaging me non stop. As a writer, he knows I love stories, and in order to make me feel better, he wrote me a very long story that helped me fall asleep and make myself feel better.
I knew that I loved him when he took me out to dinner and to go see my favorite movie, Silent Hill. The few months that followed I spent every holiday with him, Christmas, New Years, even his birthday. And with each passing day my love for him grew as well as the dreadful day of his deployment grew closer.
He swore up and down that he wasn’t going to ask me out before he went away because he didn’t want to leave anyone behind, in-case something dreadful did happen out in the middle east. He didn’t want to leave that sorrow, pain, and agony on someone. But I kept reassuring him, that I was up for the challenge. That I liked him far more than anyone I’ve ever been with. Although he believed me, he still didn’t want to ask me out.
It wasn’t until two weeks before he was to leave when he told me he loved me. I had just gotten into an argument with my mom, and since things stateside wasn’t going well, I was at my wits ends. I’m trying to join the National Guard like Eric, and with his help it’s becoming possible, but alas, there are still a few more obstacles I must face before I can make my way basic. We were cuddling in his bed, and I was almost asleep on his chest when his looks down at me, plays with my hair and whispers softly, “I love you.” I started crying, hugging him tightly and responded “I love you too.” For the past 6 months, I had fallen head over heels in love with him, and he told me he loved me first. And right after he said that, he asked me out. Of course I said YES.
I’m not like most military girlfriends, I wasn’t there through Basic training. I wasn’t there through most of the downtime. But I’m there through his first deployment. As I type this, he called me, and I instantly had a grin on my face. Eric is talking to his best friend, and I’m sitting here with the biggest grin my face. I love him, and cannot wait till he comes home and we can start our lives together.

This is me and my amazing soldier after he came home from AIT :)  After seeing each other 48 hours out of 6 months, we were both crying from pure happiness of being in each other&#8217;s arms again.  We met when we were 16 and 17.  We are now 20 and 21 and still going strong even though we live 4000 miles apart :)
