Serving abroad is difficult on anybody’s life – but it is an added strain on couples who are separated for great lengths of time.

One Marine recently experienced this when his girlfriend claimed the distance between them had led her to cheat on him. Twice.

Heartbroken but not lacking a sense of humor, the Marine responded to his girlfriend – and it was pure gold!

Marine Writes Back to His Cheating Girlfriend

A Marine stationed in Afghanistan recently received a “Dear John” Letter from his girlfriend back home. It read as follows:

Dear Ricky,

I can no longer continue our relationship. The distance between us is just too great. I must admit that I have cheated on you twice since you’ve been gone, and it’s not fair to either of us. I’m sorry. Please return the picture of me that I sent to you.

Love, Becky


The Marine, with hurt feelings, asked his fellow Marines for any snapshots they could spare of their girlfriends, sisters, ex-girlfriends, aunts, cousins etc. In addition to the picture of Becky, Ricky included all the other pictures of the pretty gals he had collected from his buddies.

There were 57 photos in that envelope along with this note:

Dear Becky,

I’m so sorry, but I can’t quite remember who the hell you are. Please take your picture from the pile, and send the rest back to me.

Take Care,
