I Am a Navy Wife

A group for navy wives to connect. 810 People

    My husband left Monday.

    He got to GL on Wednesday @ 01:00. I got the scripted call. Today should be P-3. I got a call from him today asking how my health is. Is this normal?

    Times Change.

    Hello! I am Beki. 19 years old and I'm British. I had some family problems in 2007, so in 2008 I moved to Bahrain with my mother, step father and now 6 year old brother. I had a year of partying, meeting new friends and trying to decide what I should do with my life. Then came...

    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...

    My husband left 2 months ago

    for deployment on the Iwo Jima, I'm feeling very lonely with him gone and am having a very hard time. I'm 20 years old and I just recently lost my mom to Breast Cancer so between these two things I feel very alone and unable to deal with day to day things. Any advice?

    Wish I Could Feel 'Navy pride' Like I Used To Feel

    I am feeling so cynical right now.  In the last hour I've felt angry, disbelieving, anxious, panicky, indignant, frustrated, sad and helpless.  It is the helpless part that gets to me the most.  I am to the point where I don't even want to think about the whole retirement...

    So today my husband left

    for his first deployment in the Navy. He'll be gone for 10 months and I am terrified. I hate the feeling of being alone. He's new to the Navy, he left for bootcamp in February of this year, and I saw him for his graduation + the weekend after it. Then he had to go to ASchool...

    The past few weeks he's been really mean, picking on me and fighting with me over nothing, he always apologizes afterwards. I've been going through a hard time trying to find a job, so I've been selling my vintage clothes and I'm actually pretty good at it. I'm making some money...

    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.
