For those of us who still sleep with stuffed animals, just because he got them for us.
This goes out to those of us who never lets go of her cell phone.
This goes out to those of us whose heart swells with pride every time the national anthem is played.
This goes out to the proud women who stand tall behind a United States soldier.
We sit and we wait, for a letter, for a phone call, and for the lucky ones, a homecoming.
Many people don’t understand this life; they say it’s unfair, they say they couldn’t do it.
Well, here is our response....
Do not tell us you’re sorry, or that you know how we feel.
Don’t try to make us laugh when we’re sad, we don’t want to laugh, we’d rather sit and think about our man.
We may not be “happy” with all of this, but we don’t mind waiting.
To us, it’s an honor.
We are the girls who wake up every morning with a sick feeling in her stomach; we’re the ones who just lay there for a minute to prepare ourselves for the day ahead.
We’re the ones who look forward to going to sleep; because they are with us in our dreams.
We are the ones you see wearing a sweatshirt or t-shirt that is 2 sizes too big just because it’s his.
This is for those of us who’s best friends they have never met; we meet them on myspace or support groups.
They are those only ones who understand.
This goes out to the women who spend holidays alone, this is for those of us who take pictures to send to our men when we wear a cute outfit or have a good hair day.
We know the real meaning of love, its not cute presents or formal dinners; its hearing his voice, it’s seeing him for the first time in many months.
For those of us that know what a chow hall is, those of us that know terms like head, rack and porthole.
This is for those of us who belong to a United State soldier.
You may see us struggle but you will never see us fall.
We are among the silent ranks; we are the few, the proud, the ones left behind.
We are bonded together by the United States Army.
Our men are brothers, a family of one.
Each one of us have one of the few.
We stand tall and we stand strong.
We stand behind our soldiers through thick and thin.
We are the girls of the United States Arm
