Yes, you care. No, you are not weak, but do your best to not cry in front of them. Easier said than done, trust me, I know. But I have found it is much easier on them to do what they must...

My Gorgeous Handsome Soldier

Today my heart is aching
For a man that's far away
I would give anything to hold him
And any ransom I would pay
I find my mind just wanders
To a sandy barren hell
And pray that my loving thoughts
Find my soldier safe and well
Each night before I go to bed
I look up to the skies
And the moon brings me comfort
As my tears brim in my eyes
Despite the miles between us
We still share the stars and sun
So I gaze upon them often
It helps me know we are still one
So as I lie down on my pillow
I close my eyes and think of you
Not only in my waking moments
But you are in all my dreams too
My gorgeous handsome soldier
I love you with all my heart
And the hardest thing I've ever done
Is have to accept we had to part
But our love is so much stronger
Than any force I've ever known
In the short time we've been together
It's amazing how much it's grown
So until we are reunited 
Please stay safe and strong
My heart is yours forever
With you is where it belongs
Think about me often
My gorgeous handsome man
To wait for you forever
Is my battle plan

I have a boyfriend in the Army. He has been the most amazing guy to me. I have never had anyone treat me so well. Anyways, he wants to marry me and I'm not sure what I should do. I love him, yes, but I don't like him being gone like this, and I know that if we are married I can go live on base with him. The thing is here in June he is only going to be home for two weeks and that is a lot to arrange in two weeks....
I just remember the last time I saw him before he left. I just cried and cried. He was doing everything in his power to comfort me. He wiped every tear that fell. I felt so stupid for crying in front of him, I felt so weak. But, I guess it means I care, right? I have been pretty lonely since he left but I'll see him soon enough.

Yes, you care. No, you are not weak, but do your best to not cry in front of them. Easier said than done, trust me, I know. But I have found it is much easier on them to do what they must when they don't see us cry. My soldier shut down emotionally the first time, because I cried. This time I didn't and yes we are far apart but he is so sweet again. As for the marriage thing only accept if you can accept your life being entangled with the military. It is his life. It will hurt him for you to say no but worse for you to say yes and then walk away.

I was in the army and I remember telling my girl I had to go, and she cried so much it hurt me. When I came back I asked her to marry me and she said yes.

How to make me happy, how to make me cry. How to make me say hello, how to make me say goodbye. What I like to eat what I like to drink what I like to do what I like to think when I am happy when I am sad. When I like to sing when I like to dance where I like to walk ONLY YOU KNOW
