My wife and I spent or first two anniversaries apart because I was in the newly formed ballistic missile submarine network in 1962. Our ship was at sea for our first two patrols at undisclosed areas in the north Atlantic during our first two anniversaries. I was then discharged honorably from the Navy and have been by her side on every anniversary since. We have been married for forty-three very happy years. I love her very much because she is always looking out for my health and wellbeing.
