Military Spouse Tag Survey

If you're a military spouse, then TAG! You're it. :)
 - - - - - - - - - 

1. How did you and your spouse meet? 
We met at Wal-Mart, he worked there at the time.

2. How old were you when you two met?
  I was 17 and he was 20.

3. How long have you been together? 
  "Together" for over three years, but we'll be married for 3 years this August!

4. Where are you and your spouse originally from? 
He's from Virginia and I'm from California, but I lived in NC when I met him (of course!)

5. How did you feel about him joining the military?
I was excited and pretty much his #1 support throughout the whole beginning of it. We both wanted a more interesting lifestyle with more opportunities and we definitely got that!

6. Where did your spouse go to boot camp/basic training
He went to boot camp at MCRD: Parris Island.
7. Has your spouse ever been deployed?
  Not yet, but we'll find out if that changes next month and if he'll deploy with some of his unit next year. He always tells me he doesn't want to be a "boot" forever, so he wants to go.

8. Ever been to his promotion ceremony? 
  No, but I do want to go at some point.
9. How long have you been a military wife? 
  Since May 2011.

10. Did you marry him before or after he joined? 
Before he joined.

11. How did your husband propose? 
We both had it all planned out, which some would call unromantic, but it worked for us! It was on top one of the "famous" mountains in our hometown area, we both read letters to each other and then out came the ring. And a little old lady saw the whole thing so she offered to take our camera and take our picture!

12. Where did you get married? 
  At our church.

13. How old were you two when you got married? 
I was 18 and he was 20...we didn't waste any time! ;)

14. Did he wear his uniform on your wedding day? 
No, didn't have one at that point!

15. Where are you and your spouse currently stationed? 
We currently live in Jacksonville, NC. He's stationed at Camp Lejeune.

16. Do you live on base? 
  No, we live in an apartment about six miles from base.

17. How long were you married when you had to go through your first separation? 
About a year and a half, when he left for boot camp.

18. What is your favorite base so far? 
  So far we've only been at this one, but we both like it for the most part.

19. Do you think your spouse looks good in his uniform? 
Of course.

20. Do you think military life is more advanced than civilian life? 
I don't think it's more advanced.. it's just different. You can't compare the two. 

21. Do you like the benefits you receive as a military dependent? 
  Yes, the benefits are great.  Basically anything I want to do on base is free which is awesome!

22. Do you have a lot of military wife friends? 
  I have two who I would even call close...we're all completely different people but we're in this military thing together so we get along great.

23. What is the hardest part of the military life?  
Things changing constantly really bothers me, but I'm getting used to it.

24. Do you own military wife stuff?
Yes, I only have one thing that actually says "Marine wife" though. I have some USMC shirts and stickers.

25. Do you support your spouse as a member of the military? 
Of course, what kind of spouse would I be if I didn't?
