Hello Amber et al.
I am also a Marine Wife. I have two children. They are 7 and 9 years old. We are currently stationed in Okinawa, Japan. Just arrived on island about a week and a half ago. Still dont have a vehicle so we are getting a little cabin feverish. But I hear once I have a vehicle and can wonder around I will love it. This place reminds me a lot of Mexico. I am Mexican raised in southern California. So anyone still stationed here and either living near Courtney or McT give me a shout. :)

I've been married to my Marine for a bit over five years now and we have two daughters, one who is four and one just over 5 months. We were stationed in Miramar for the first bit of our marriage but he was deployed for a lot of that and I ended up going back home to Oregon while he was overseas and never really connected with anyone on base there. Next we spent three years in Iwakuni, Japan, which was really isolated but I ended up getting to know a lot more people and my daughter made a lot of friends. We just settled in Pensacola where he's training to be an instructor and are living off base for the first time since getting married, and it's different.
I personally do pretty well being some what isolated. I have a lot of hobbies and don't really need a lot of "grown up" time, just a short break here and there. My daughter, on the other hand, was spoiled by the amount of kids her age on the last base and I know she gets lonely here. There just aren't a ton of preschoolers in our neighborhood or if they are here they don't come outside much.

Hello Ladies!!! So nice to see so many Marine Wives....we seem to be the minority here. Clearly, I'm the old lady of the group. My husband has served longer than many, maybe most of you have been alive! 30 years! WOW! It's great that you can connect with each other as you're experiencing teh life of being married to a Marine....but if you'd like to hear from someone that can look back with the gift of hindsight.....I'm happy to share. Hello to all at Camp Pend....we were stationed there twice....spent at least 10 years there collectively. I sometimes miss it....but love it here for our boys now.

Let me just say all you Camp Pendleton, Miramar, & MCRD families make me miss Cali even more. Hello my name is Andrea we were stationed in sunny SD, but moved 3 weeks ago to Richmond VA. If anyone is in the area or an hour or less lets chat play dates etc.. So far I see lots or Army and other branches on here. We are not attached to any base so I am on my own as far as meeting people and networking. : ( I have 2 kids 2 and 7yrs old and is happily married. My hubby is recruiting here for 3yrs, and then it will be off to our next duty station. Totally miss the west coast, but this is what I signed up for. Hope to meet some cool moms on here.

Hey! My name is Erin, I have been married to my wonderful husband Mark for 3 years. We are expecting twin boys in August and are very excited, they are our first children. We are stationed at Camp Lejeune in NC. He has been here for about 6 years now and we are looking at 3 more in this area before we decide whether to get out or move on to somewhere else :) I'm very nervous about becoming a new mom, especially with double the fun. I think I'm in trouble, haha.

My name is Leslie. I just married my Marine in December, but we have been together for 2 years. We have 3 children between us, my son 4yo, his daughter 3yo, and our 7 mth old daughter (his, hers, and ours!). We are in Georgia right now, and he is working out of Dobbins AFB, but are moving to Cherry Point, NC in July.
