Well it's been a good, long time since we've gotten any use out of this LJ Code. *smile* First off, welcome berrybuzz, the first spawn on the list. I've decided to open it up to dependants in general, just to get another point of view on being seperated from loved ones.

As for myself...

I'm still hanging in. I've started school, and am looking for work, although seeing as that Jenn's home in May, that'll complicate things. We're going to be out of town for quite a bit of the month, and naked for pretty much the rest of it. Games aside of course. *wink*

My knees are getting really bad, and I'm going into the Balboa Clinic on Wednesday, to camp out and have them looked at. We suspect cartilage loss/damage.

But health aside, I'm lonely as hell and moping a-plenty for it, but beyond all that, I'm fine. *grin*

How's everyone else?

You all should appreciate this...
The Europeans have turned against America in the War On Terror. They believe that Americans don’t understand a thing about the world. That Americans are ignorant, shallow and drunk with military might. In such a people’s hands, all that weaponry and the willingness to use it poses a greater danger to the world, or more specifically to Europe, than even Osama bin Laden. America’s handling of Iraq is a perfect example. “We Europeans have a profound understanding of the local people,” they say. “You Americans don’t even know where Iraq is located on a map.”

Thus think the Europeans.

Should America, and the rest of the world, listen? What is Europe’s lesson to humanity? What example have they set for the rest of us?

To answer this question, we at the eXile have decided to let ze Europeans speak for themselves. A sort of “Europe on Europe” primer. Nothing could better test the European sense of profound inter-ethnic understanding than studying how Europeans view their very own European neighbors.

And when you do that, you find something incredible: Bigotry and hatred are the bread and water of European life. This isn’t a vague, impersonal hatred; rather, it’s a profoundly evolved, carefully tailored hatred, a SMART Hatred if you will, tailored as tightly as a Swiss banker’s shirt towards the village over the hill, where your bosom enemies live.

Okay, so rantmo added me. I didn't realize this until now, when I went to go take a look. Silly rantmo.

So I am Jamie, girlfriend of royalcrown in San Diego. Marc's rolling up on 4 years in the Navy, we've been dating for 2.3, and he's about to re-up, having gotten his dream orders. He's staying in San Diego (yay!) He's going to be the Navigator on one of these:

LCU

Anyway, that's about it for now.

How'm I doing?
Up and down.

I heard from Nick Friday - he's in Basic, and I could tell by his voice that he was worn down. We only got to talk briefly, and even then only because he had to give me information on faxing stuff if we get an offer on our house. We went through all the details, then he talked briefly before his sergeant came back. When he got off the phone, I could tell he was about to cry.

I broke.

Then Monday, I heard from him again - he sounded much more like the Nick I know, happier, though a little reserved (as I would be in a room full of people!). He sounded stronger, and his strength gave me strength.

I love him more and more with every day that passes. I miss the HELL out of him.

One thing I can say - this experience certainly makes us BOTH stronger.

Introductions
I'm Pam and I live in Seattle, WA. My fiance lives in Ridgecrest, CA (middle of the Mojave desert) where he's currently stationed. He's an E5 in the Navy and an Avionics Tech. He's got another 5 years in the Navy, minimum (if he doesn't re-up). We usually get to see each other every 3 months, more frequently during the holidays, sometimes less frequently. We're currently in the middle of a 6 month stretch.

We're getting married June 2003, going to have a few weeks together on honeymoon, and then we go back to our respective places. It's going to be strange married and living in different states, but there isn't much call for my skills where he is, and I have a lot of debt to pay.

December 2003 he'll put in orders. At that point he'll either move to Whidby Island WA or we'll both go to Rota Spain. While both of those are good news, the bad news is he'll also be on det... so again with the 3-6 month apart thing and I've heard stints can go as long as 9 mos to a year...

I'm not sure what to do about him being on det and family planning. We both want children, but I'm worried about raising the kids alone. I'm frail enough healthwise as it is... but then we also haven't decided if he'll re-up. I don't want to put off the family too long.

So there's my current Military relationship in a nutshell.
