Ask any Navy spouse, or any military spouse for that matter – there is always a list of reasons why, on any given day, being married to a service-member flat out stinks.
On those days when you, a usually proud Navy spouse, are having trouble remembering why military service is such a worthy career, here is a list that is sure to bring a smile to your face, a laugh to your belly, and maybe even a tear to your eye. Because even on the bad days, it’s good to remember the benefits, the heritage, the tradition, and those things that are just plain cool about being married to a sailor!
10. Life’s a Beach!
The Navy ALMOST always sends us to live in lovely places located on a coastline.
Navy = ships, and for the most part, ships = water.
The U.S. Navy is the proud owner of some of the most stunning beachfront properties in the world: San Diego, Pearl Harbor, Pensacola, La Maddalena (Italy, which has sadly been closed), Virginia Beach, Charleston, Whidbey Island, just to name a few.
Admittedly, some of you may be stationed at a landlocked base for a shore tour, but hang in there, Navy spouse. Your shore tour won’t last more than three years and you’ll be back to surfing, snorkeling and fun at the beach in no time!
