So many times the same story always stumbles across… friends from the Army, Navy, Marines… always dismiss the mantra I’ve always said, and I’ll still repeat it. When you join any military service, you are married. Any marriage outside of it is cheating.
Lately, I’ve seen it so much, and it even hurts me to watch. Guys that are so skilled, talented on the field, and able to handle a weapon better than most.. some of which have taken bullets for our forces. It’s a balancing act that is nearly impossible… the time you put into the training is stolen from any relationship. In the forces, you put your blood, sweat, and tears into everything you do because you care. In a relationship, you do the same. It always boils down to the same thing… an unstoppable force meeting an immovable object.
It nearly always ends up the same way… when your heart is on the military, it should only be there.
