Being a Marine Corps Spouse

Marine Corps 235th Birthday Ball

 By Jill Bright

Being a Marine Corps spouse means many things to me, but mainly that we have the same pride that our husbands have in their job, in their sacrifice and their Corps.  We support our Marines by standing beside them to take care of the things they can not either because they work long hours or they are deployed. On the flip side of it, we also take care of other Marine spouses when the going gets tough, we make meals without knowing their names, we find friends wherever we go—because we are Marine spouses.  We form a special bond with Marine spouses quickly—not because Marine spouses are set apart from other services spouses, but because we have been in the similar paths as them, and know “a friend of a friend” in our small community. We generally feel as if we have known each other for years, when actually it’s only been days.  Marines and Marine spouses do one thing very well—we take care of each other.  Happy Birthday Marines and your spouses!
