It started when I was about 14 years old. We lived on the US Air Force Academy, and needless to say, there are tons of uniformed men all around. They were always clean cut and sharp in their uniforms- sharp and handsome.
I used to sneak a peak from the corner of my eye at them and just think in my little immature head how lucky their girlfriends were.
When I was 16 I got my first job busing tables at the prep school dining hall. Uniformed men...all around. I was in HEAVEN! I managed to snag one up by the end of the summer. He was tall, dark, handsome, had a sexy Spanish accent...and in uniform.
We dated for 2 years. He wore his uniform to my senior homecoming and to senior prom.
I just like a respectable man in uniform. I think Marines are sharp and I like the silent drill team. They stand poised and professional in their uniforms. It's not just the Marines or the Air Force uniforms, or just military uniforms. I like police uniforms and the alike. I think they stand for bravery, and I like that in a respectable man.
