Hi my name is Amanda and I'm 26 years old. My husband is a soldier and has been in the Army for almost ten years. We met seven years ago, have been together for three years, and married almost a year. He has been my rock and strength since day one and I can honestly say it was love at first site. I created this site because I know how hard it is to be married to someone in the military, especially when they are gone and you feel like you are alone. I also wanted to have my own online diary to be able to express my feelings and write about what I'm going through. My husband will soon be going to Korea for a year, and it is going to be by far one of the hardest years. Even through deployments I was able to lean on my family and friends for support, but this time I am 2,000 miles away from home and doing it on my own. I just have to take it a day at a time. I know there is a light at the end of the tunnel, but it sure is going to be a hard road to get there. I know I am a strong woman, but this journey will teach me just how strong I can really be, and deal with the challenges that life is going to throw at me. Just have to remember: one day closer.
