My name is Samantha, I'm going on 19, and I am a military girlfriend. My boyfriend of almost a year is currently in basic training in Fort Benning Georgia for the Connecticut National Guard. He left on August 13th & I got my first letter today! But, of course, I miss him like crazy. I wanted to make this group so other girls in my same situation could have a platform to just talk whenever they need it. Feel free to post & I'll do my best to respond to everyone.
