I was 24. Married to dh since I was just shy of 21. We lived with my parents to work on our finances. I was an assistant branch manager at a small bank. We decided to try getting pregnant while dh was in the process of joining the army and had a baby 2 weeks before basic training.

(I'm from a navy town and grew up swearing I'd never marry someone in the military. then I met and married dh and he ended up joining lol)

I was working as a veterinary technician. Decided I needed something more at that time and at age 23 I joined the Army! That's how I met my husband.

My dad was career Navy and retired right before I went to college. Then I spent a few years in the working world after graduation before joining the Coast Guard. After I got medically discharged I married a Coastie. So really, my whole life except fokr a few years has been all military.
