During the month of November, The Real Wife Movement™ will be featuring stories from military wives. These brave veterans or active duty women will share their stories of military and marriage.
Be inspired by Tiffany’s Story.
1996…. A long time ago, I was a young soldier just arriving in Ft. Campbell, KY. I was far from home and alone, but eager to meet and make new friends and I did just that! The very next day after my arrival, this tall, coffee brown, handsome soldier showed up! But it wasn’t a dream come true…
To be honest, when we met, he didn’t even like me at all, and I was actually engaged to someone else. But time went by, my engagement was over and he became my very best friend.
After about a year and a half, things started to change between him and me. Although he was assigned to a different unit, we spent a lot of time together.
In spite of the crazy military life, there was a love developing
between us. PT, Air Assault Training, him working at the motor pool and me being all the way on the other end of the base at the air field, schedules would be crazy, yet we always found a way to just be us. Meeting up for meals at the mess hall, (cafeteria), church, of course, and when we had down time after the work day.
December 1997, Christmas Day, we were to spend the day with his family, out of town. Needless to say, he got down on one knee in front of the Christmas tree, and he proposed, and my life was forever changed! 18 years later, we’re still happily married.
True love still exist, EVEN in the military.
