I am 19 years old. My boyfriend Geoff (20) and I have been together for over 2 years now and we are madly in love. My sailor left for bootcamp in April 2010, graduated in June 2010, graduated A school in October 2010 and is scheduled to class up for Power school in January 2011. Our relationship is long distance for right now. I'm a nursing student at a college in Missouri for now. Our plan is to get married when he graduates for Prototype :).
I am here to support my
Stage of (Sailor’s) Navy career?
When I heard “Navy,” I...
Needed to learn more about it
The Navy offers opportunities that...
To expect the unexpected and treasure every second with the love of my life. Our relationship has truly grown stronger through this experience. This military lifestyle is definitely not easy, but it has matured our relationship beyond belief. We no longer take each other for granted. Every day I become more and more positive that this is the man I am meant to spend my life with.
Our Navy experience so far...
It was positive and maturing. Our relationship has grown stronger.

Hey you! Good to see your back! :)
If you up the page to the little box on the right hand side.. The one that has your name at the top and then "Inbox, Alerts, etc." Click on Settings. Then on the left hand side there's different options to choose. Go to My Page. Then click on appearance. There's lots of different options for backgrounds, etc. If you want a countdown like mine, just go back to my profile, and under my countdown, click on Countdown Clocks. It's super easy. :)
