To Men and Women In the Military • Letter Templates

Example Letter #1


I am counting the days till you come back to me and you are in my arms again. The days seem longer than usual since you went overseas. I know that I should write only cheerful letters, and I will try. I do want you to know, however, that you are sorely missed. Your parents and I stay in touch. We talk about how we will welcome you home when your tour of duty ends.

We all pray that you are kept safe from harm and get the mail and packages that we send you. I would like to wrap myself in a box and mail myself to you. Wouldn't that be fun?

Stay safe and know that I love you with all my heart.

Example Letter #2


I remember the day we met like it was only yesterday! You took my heart at a glance, and I knew you were the one I wanted to spend forever with. That smile of yours just put me in a daze. I am so happy I have you in my life. I couldn't ask for anything else in this entire world because I found all I ever wanted or needed in you! The times we shared together are times I will always cherish! I am looking forward to all the happy moments together we will have in the future!

The day you had to leave to go overseas is also a day I will never forget, because that day, my love, you took with you my heart and soul. You looked at me with that smile on your face and promised everything would be fine--you said the Navy put us together and would keep us together until the end of time! We held each other tight with tears in our eyes. We didn't want to let go, but the time came to say goodbye. I hugged and kissed you and told you, "I love you." You held me so tight that day and looked into my eyes and said, "I love you, and I will come back to you." I got in our car and just sat there, and the tears wouldn't stop. I looked up from the steering wheel and surprise! You ran back to me! You kissed me one last time and said, "Believe me, I will be back."

This is a cost I know I have to pay, my love. I know there will be other times you will have to go away, and the pain will not stop until I have you back by my side. Fight for our country, then hurry back home to your loving wife! I love you and I miss you!

Example Letter #3


We all want you back again, safe and sound. You are serving your country, and I am proud of you for that.

I miss your kisses and your arms around me. Every day I miss you more and more. I hope I can see you again soon, but until I do, I will keep you in my prayers and in my heart. Remember that I love you and that I always will. We are the lucky ones because we found each other again, and we are able to love each other more than we ever have before. I can't wait to see you again. It's only been a little over a week, but already I know that I cannot be away from you and from our love so long. I love you with all my heart!

Example Letter #4


I wish I could speak to you every day, but the times you do call or when we get a letter are wonderful! Talking to you makes me feel good for at least a day or two afterwards, and I read your letters over and over again!

I appreciate it when you try to cheer me up. There you are serving our country in the middle of shocking events and still you try to make me feel safe! You are unbelievable and so special! I will love you always.

Please take care of yourself and don't worry about me.

Example Letter #5


I am really proud of everyone who is serving in the armed forces. It makes me feel good just to tell people that I know you. You and thousands of others who stepped forward to defend our nation are brave and honorable citizens.

Please let me know if there is anything at all I can do for you here. I would be happy to visit your parents if you like. Just let me know. I am adding my email address and my cell phone number below if you ever get a chance to contact me.

You know you are in my prayers.

Example Letter #6


You have been overseas for a while now, and every day I miss you more. I hope you know the children and I love you very much.

When you get another chance to read your email, you will be able to see pictures of your family. We love you and miss you here at home.

After I call the children together to pray every night, first we look at the family picture we had taken before you left first. Then we fold our arms and ask God to protect you and bring you home soon.

Please take care, my love. Everybody misses you here.

Example Letter #7


Neither one of us expected to be separated this long. We knew you could be sent away to fight in that war, but neither one of us really thought it would happen. But now it has, and I am so lonely without you, but proud of you, too.

I miss you very much, but the career you've chosen is an honorable one. I don't think there is anything more important or worthwhile than protecting your family and defending your country. I know you feel that way, too.

We love you and miss you so very much.

Example Letter #8


Oh, how I miss you, my wonderful sweetheart! The military has taken you far away from your home and from me. Yes, I do get lonely, but I think of how difficult it is for you there, and then I scold myself for being selfish.

Please don't worry about me. I am okay. I want you to think only of taking care of yourself and of coming back home soon.

I love you very much.

Example Letter #9


You don't need to worry about me and the kids. We are fine except for missing you, and we will go on missing you until you come home again.

I have my job to do here taking care of the children, and you have your job to do there, which is just as difficult.

I worry about your commitment to defend our country during these difficult times, but I really am proud of you.

The kids and I love you and miss you, so please take care of yourself.

Example Letter #10


I realize that we can't be together, but I will be here for you when you return. In the meantime, I know that you are in God's hands and that He watches over you. I pray every day and night that He will always watch over you. I miss talking to you and listening to your voice. I miss your hugs, your kisses, and your sweet ways of showing how much you love me. I have never been in love with anyone the way I am in love with you. I feel free when I am near you. You let me be me and make me feel so special.

I know God has something good in store for us, because He is a loving God. When we are in each other's arms again, He will shower us with His incredible love.

I miss you and our children miss you, too. Our son and daughter talk about their Dad every day. We include you in our nightly prayers, which we say with your photograph nearby. We all talk about how we will shower you with hugs and kisses when you come home. We sometimes argue over who will run up to you first when we see you at the station. We all agree that we will spoil you and never allow you to be out of our sight.

With God watching over you, we know that you are in the best of hands.
