Even if you do have a loyal girlfriend/ fiancee/ wife, it's difficult! My wife wrote a letter every single day that I was in OSUT and RIP (she was actually in Benning during Jump School, so she didn't have to write then). She was loyal, 110% and then some.
However, after singing all those cadences about 'Jody,' I got somewhat brainwashed (briefly) and figured she was probably out running around. I also decided (briefly) that since I was going to be a trained killler, I didn't even need a woman.
I wrote her a letter one evening that basically told her exactly that. The letter even had a skull and crossed bones drawn on it. She still has that letter somehwere!
Needless to say, it broke her heart, which in turn made me feel like a complete idiot. We've been together for 20 years now. She's supported me in everything I've ever done.
My point is, there is a certain degree of 'brainwashing', for lack of a better word, that takes place. It may not be intentional, on the part of the Drill Sgts, but it does occur. So, even if your girl is totally committed to you, it takes focus on both ends to make it last through the times that you are away. On your part, that focus needs to be kept in check, so as not to over-ride your focus on the mission.
BTW, Devilrat, how are the injuries healing?
