Salute to troops
United by Love; Divided by Duty
We met on Facebook in July 2012, we had 6 months together before he left for training in Georgia for 4 months. I realized our connection was too strong to let go for the simple fact that he would be leaving. In May of 2013 we were married, both at the age of 20. 98% of people thought we'd never make it, but here we are married for 5 months and falling more in love everyday. Since January 15, 2013 we have probably spent a total of 2 months together with the various times we get to spend together since I am finishing school in NJ while he is based out in Washington State. In January 2014 I will FINALLY be moving into our home across the country. Together at last. He is an E3 in the Army and is serving as an infantryman. It has been the hardest thing having to endure over the past almost year, but every time I get to be in his arms, it reminds me why it is always worth it.
