Joined the Army as enlisted then went to nursing school. After nursing school received my commision in the Army Nurse Corps. While stationed at Fort Rucker, AL I took a trip to Pensacola, Fl for a weekend. Meet my husband while he was in Navy Flight School. After he graduated flight shcool we both received orders to Washington him to Whidbey Island and me to Fort Lewis (about 2.5 hours apart). We knew we would never get stationed together being in different services so I transfered to the Navy for love. Then we were sent to Offutt AFB, NE and I compeleted my career there in 2007.
