Our Story

Alright so I'm very new to all this. Being a part of a support group was the last thing I expected. But I've been here for a few days and its wonderful knowing that there are people who feel the same way as me. I talk to friends, but they just give me sympathy. I dont need sympathy...Im proud of my man.

We met my sophmore year of High School by complete accident. I was in a wreck a month before we met and it was the closest i've ever been to death. Everyone in school knew about the wreck including this boy by the name of James Hayes. Well, my phone was in peices after the accident so I had to buy a new one. James' best friend, Derek, was in my science class and he was obsessed with how awesome my new phone was. He picked someone in his address book, James, then texted him off my phone. "Hey sexy!" Haha...and thats how we met..I met him in person a week later. An akward text message led to the best 2 years of my life. He was older and joined the navy a year after high school.

I had never cared much for the military. I wanted to join the peace corps and im the closest to a hippie and you can get. Im all about peace and happiness and blahh blahh blahh. I fell in love with a sailor. And I honestly can't see myself without him. He is in Groton, CT at the moment and is working his way through the Naval Submarine School. After, he goes to A-School. He came up with a funny little title for our relationship. "The Hippie and her Military Man"

Im finishing my senior year living a different life from my friends. Sometimes I think its not fair. But when I see him in that uniform, those polished shoes...I fall in love all over again. I love my Navy Sailor. I am his support. But who is mine? I am here to find people who know exactly how I feel. And I've been here for a few days and have felt nothing but support and understanding(: Thank you so much. I hope you gave this super long story a look over. And I would love to hear from any of you!

He is in Groton, CT right now. Just got my first phone call(: And he's at the submarine school right now.

I felt the same way as you! I was a peace lover now I'm thrown into military life! Lol it's a great place to be even when it's hard! Do you know where he'll be stationed yet?
