Recently, I was leafing through the February issue of Military Spouse magazine. The article that caught my attention was one about real-life military love stories. What struck me was that almost all the couples interviewed in the stories met when they were very young—in high school or college, typically. These were lovely, but I would’ve liked to have seen one or two tales about people who got together later in life, such as my husband Rob and me.

We met in October 1997 at a joint simulation military exercise called “Unified Endeavor” held in Suffolk, VA.  (The joint part is important because that is why I, a lieutenant in the Air Force, and Rob, an Army Captain, ended up there at the same time).
