Long Distance Love Quotes for Deployment

Note: I may earn money or products from the companies, products, or links mentioned in this post.

When my husband was in basic training I decided to send him a love letter every single day and include several long distance love quotes. I wanted to let him know that he was loved, thought about, and prayed for the entire time he was gone.

I typed up my letters in a document, and each day I would print one out and mail it to him. Not only did I include long distance love quotes, but I also wrote to him about my day, the things that were going on while he was gone, and of course all the wedding planning I was doing!

I remember searching online for just the right long distance love quotes to send him. Things that would make him feel encouraged and loved. While I do not know who these quotes are attributed to, I hope that you too find these quotes helpful and comforting during your service member‘s deployment or in your long distance relationship.
