Dating a military man quotes
For University of Maryland sophomore Meagan Keller, long-term separations and deployment decisions are a daily reality. Army combat engineer, has been stationed in Heidelberg, Germany since July 2009, and Keller’s still waiting for the day he gets orders to a war zone.
“It definitely has its ups and downs, but I know he’s eventually going to come home,” Keller said of Eric Goldenthal, her boyfriend of 11 months. “We haven’t gotten to deployment yet, but he could possibly see combat,” she said.
There is a "poem" (as many have called it) circulating the internet. I cannot promise to be beside you for every difficult moment, every trial, every hardship. Any special date to us may be tainted with the anniversary of the death of one of my friends.
For those who will fly today, for those who are there now, and for those who will soon join the fight, Lord, shield them from all evil, strengthen their hearts, and bring them home safely.
I cannot promise to understand why you share things with your comrades that you will not share with me.I cannot promise to understand why you do so many of the things you do.But I can promise that for as many tears of sadness and frustration and anger that are shed there will be double that of tears of pride.I cannot promise that there won't be times when my heartache makes its presence known before my pride can mask it.I cannot promise that I will not show my worry and my concern when it is best for you not to see it.
