This is sort of a repeat. But not fully.
I love the sense of community in the Marine Corps (you know - minus the two-faced people, but I guess even they have their place here in life!). It was so nice that even though the guys had the day off, Matt and I still went into the office Friday for a then Gunny/now Master Sergeant's promotion ceremony. And I wasn't the only wife either! AND we got to be there for another promotion too!
And I love being able to do that. Being able to stand with someone's wife, while another is taking pictures for them, and be involved in the pride of a promotion.
Or knowing that if someone needs something, there are always people around that can help.
And truthfully? Even knowing full well that some wives in the company don't like me at all, I'm really happy knowing that there will always be someone for someone to help and support. It might not be me, and that's perfectly fine! Haha that sounds selfish, but I do mean that there are many niches, many different communities. And in the end we all love and support our husbands and share that pride in what they do. :)
