Military australia dating
I was a junior in college and had no way of just picking up and leaving for Georgia. That was probably one of the hardest things I ever had to do.
To make matters worse, when he arrived from that first deployment, I was not there to greet him.
My husband enlisted in July of 2003, only months after we had invaded Iraq.
Needless to say, I was not thrilled with his decision.
Sure enough, about a week after he had arrived at 1 Ranger Battalion, I got the call.
He was schedule to deploy to Iraq in a matter of days.
I was able to attend his Basic Training graduation, which conveniently fell on Valentine’s Day weekend.
***** Hi, my name is Jessica and I was the girlfriend and then the fiancé of an Army Ranger.
Even when my husband was state side, life was not much easier.
I was in Virginia and he was in Georgia, so I felt like I was constantly out of the loop.
I started dating my boyfriend when I was 15 he was 17. I was supportive, but I didn’t really know what I was in for either.
We fell in love quickly, after dating for about a year, and he was 18 he told me some army recruiters had stopped by during lunch at school and they said he had potential physically after completing a pt test with him. The day he left was hard but it still hadn’t hit me, but a few weeks later I became really depressed. Things became easier as I received many letters over the course of the 16 weeks of btc and ait, until we found out he would be stationed in Germany. I didn’t know what to do, how to feel, and I didn’t know what to say.We spent an amazing week together but saying good-bye proved more difficult than before.
