A Letter From A Marine Wife To Her Deployed Husband

Thank you for all you do, and come home safe.

A Letter From A Marine Wife To Her Deployed Husband
Phil Medina

To my dear husband on your first deployment,

I want you always to remember that my heart is forever yours. There is no other man who can replace the love and support you have given me throughout our beautiful relationship. I know that my stubbornness and anxiety can be unbearable to live with at times, but you have chosen to stand by my side. I fell in love with you hard at the peak of our military careers with no regrets and precious memories. I could not imagine my life without you.

This deployment will not be easy for us. The feeling of not physically embracing you in my arms, comforting you after a rough day of work or cooking you soup to make your cold go away bothers me. As your wife, I am used to taking care of your needs even though I acknowledge how well you can take care of yourself. As long as we maintain constant communication within the next few months like we have in person, our marriage will be stronger than ever.

My advice to you during this difficult time overseas would be to keep busy and to maintain your strength. The more involved you are with activities, the quicker time will pass. Eat healthily, sleep well and work out, if you have time. Take care of your fellow marines. Socialize with people on a professional and casual level. Even though I never have to tell you this, please check your surroundings.

I appreciate everything you have done for us thusfar. You are one of the most diligent, humble, compassionate men out there. I am so lucky to be with you. I only see great things in store for us after this deployment, from me earning a college degree to us having children. There are so many beautiful things to look forward to with you, and I could not be any prouder of the man I married. Thank you for letting me into your heart and lighting up my world. Nonetheless, this is not a goodbye. This is an “I’ll see you soon.” I send you all my love, kisses and hugs. Te amo con todo mi vida.

Love always,

Your wife

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
