    Default If you're not in love with a soldier

    Got this in an email. Thought I would share....

    IF YOU'RE NOT IN LOVE WITH A SOLDIER!!!
    >
    >If you're not in love with a soldier, you can't know adventure.
    >You don't know smelly gray PT uniforms that require daily washing You can't understand green and brown camouflaged bags flooding your bedroom floor.
    >
    >
    >If you're not in love with a soldier, you can't understand the
    >meaning of the phrase going to the field and the weeks you spend away from each other.
    >
    >If you're not in love with a soldier, you can never imagine the hole in your heart when the phone call comes. Honey, I am leaving tomorrow to go overseas. I don't know how long I will be gone or exactly where I am going but I want you to know I love you Always!
    >
    >
    >If you're not in love with a soldier, you don't know what it's like to say that final good-bye. You don't know what it really means to be glued to the television. You don't understand fear and you can't possibly understand the sleepless nights of endless crying wondering if you will ever see the love of your life alive again.

    >
    >If you're not in love with a soldier, you can't know the immense joy, the uncontrollable smile, or the butterflies in your stomach when you see your soldier march onto parade field upon redeployment, You can't understand the self-control it takes to stand a mere thirty feet away from your man as some higher up gives a seemingly endless welcome home speech while all the soldiers stand in formation. You don't know what it is like to have the second first kiss or what its like to experience puppy love all over.

    >If you're not in love with a soldier, you can't truly understand how to make every moment count because you never know when that phone call may come again.

    Melody. That is so touching....I can't imagine how all you women married to soldiers really feel inside...It must take alot of love and alot of courage from your part.
