"Alright, I read the initial post you made and I have read some of your other posts too. Having a husband who went through this and graduated March 8th from basic training gives me some insight into the male mind as a result of the training they…"

Liz replied to Leighj1234's discussion I guess some girls do try to trap Marines in the group For Wives, Fianceés and Girlfriends of Marines
"This is my opinion solely. First, I think the idea of trapping a Marine is ironic. How can a strong Marine get trapped?  Does the woman leave a trail of crumbs to her V...?  Second, my recommendation for avoiding the kind of situation you…"

"My boyfriend graduated on the 5th with India Co. He was in the platoon that never got to call until the weekend right before graduation. He sent me a letter but it got to me the week before graduation so physical letters might not be the way to go.…"

"You don't have to make them 'OMG I miss you so much emails.' Rather, just show interest in wanting to hear how things are going, you are sure he is doing great, fill him in on things happening at home, etc. Don't make it so much…"
