Military and dating
Then the supposed CO sends back a letter asking for money to connect a phone line or some other complete lie. He says one of the following…parents died, his wife died in his arms, his wife was killed in a car accident along with all of his children, his children are orphaned and living in some remote location, or he was orphaned……all LIES. And I mean if this was for real and that kind of luck follows him, why do you want to be with him? He says he doesn’t have a mailing address because either he is in a classified unit or his position changes so often.
With a remarkable member base of over 600,000 military personnel and civilians, whether you’re looking for a military penpal or love in the armed forces, you can find it right here.
Real military ID pictures basically look like a mugshot – solid background with him in uniform and basically only showing his face (maybe the very top of his shoulders).
Someone sent me one the other day that not only looked nothing like a military ID (more like a business card for a recruiter), it had a picture of a soldier who was obviously at a military ball or some other formal event as he had a bow tie with his dress uniform. The Army posted this example on their Facebook page: So exactly which one are you dating?
If all an Army spouse had to do was email her soldier’s commander to get him home from deployment, don’t you think ALL Army spouses would be doing this? The Army does not allow leave requests from Army family members. There are ATMs on any main post and the PX accepts debit and credit cards. Last time I checked we aren’t on a lot of peacekeeping missions in Nigeria and Syria.
In fact, even in the case of the death of an immediate family member, the information has to be verified by the American Red Cross before the soldier’s command is contacted for possible leave by officials at the Red Cross – they don’t just take your word for it. He wants you to pay for a phone line, cell phone or calling card so you can talk to each other. My husband deployed multiple times and we never paid for a single phone call. Not to mention, soldiers are making enough to buy a phone card if they really had to. He’s about to retire and then he can marry you and live happily ever after. LOL A General will have well over 20 years of service and less than 1% of officers will make it to the rank of General. If he says he’s somewhere that there isn’t an ATM or another way to get money, there is also nothing for him to spend money on. And if we were, a real soldier wouldn’t tell you that. I originally had other questions you could ask regarding his training, etc, but I’m removing those because many people believed whatever ridiculous information he came up with when they asked.
