    I Always Said I'd Never Fall For a Navy Guy

    I am a Navy wife.  I knew better.  Really.  My dad and stepdad are both retired chiefs, so I didn't have any illusions about this life.  I saw past the snazzy uniform (though he does look awfully good in it).  Still, when love bites you . . . A decade...

    I Miss Him Like Crazy.

    We've both become a little more skilled at dealing with underways, but they never become easy. I've created new friendships in the time that he's been gone, thrown myself into work, going out whenever I'm invited, just to keep busy. Just so the loneliness doesn't sink it. But, it...

    Goodmorning Members

    I am a wife of a retired Navy man. We have been married for 36 years now and we spent 30 years in the Navy. Being a military wife is hard no matter what service you are in but you can handle it! I did, and my hubby and I sometimes actually do miss it.
