deployment . . .

  • Crystal Arratia

    I've been deployed 3 times and to this day I've never seen anything about her or she leaving everyone she loves...it's kinda sad that after all these years women still don't get recognized

  • Nicole Peacock

    You're recognized Crystal. Troops meaning men and women. But most men with wives and girlfriends deployed probably don't think it's very "cool" to make buttons, wear ribbons, or post on Pinterest how much you're missed. God bless you and everyone you love.

  • Marcie Knoll-Damiani

    Thank you, to every man and woman who have chosen to serve. I will never take your sacrifice for granted. Forever grateful... God bless you all.... ♥

  • Sandra Thomas

    Thanks Crystal, I can only imagine how much harder it's for a woman to leave her loves ones behind.

  • Angie Renzetti

    The sacrifice of a soldier isn't dependent on their gender. Thank you Crystal and every female in the troops!

Don't try to tell me how to live my life, or love who I love. Like suddenly just because he's gone a lot makes him a bad choice, that I shouldn't put my life on hold for him. But that's just not how I see it.

    You don't have to answer to anyone but yourself. Your choices, if made from your whole heart, are no one else's business.

    It's hard to be so far. I miss you. But we can do this. Aaron Henry

Even though the first one is over I still hate it just as much

“Right then, I wanted to go back in time and relive every moment with him. One more secret smile, one more shared laugh. One more electric kiss. Finding him was like finding someone I didn't know I was searching for. He’d come into my life too late, and now was leaving too soon. I remembered him telling me he’d give up everything for me. He already had.” ― Becca Fitzpatrick, Hush, Hush
