  • Dh and I both joined after 9/11. Not immediately after but it was about 5 years after when we were legally adults.

  • My husband and I both entered boot camp 3 months after but he had already signed up before it had happened. We were in boot camp at the same time but did not meet each other until about a year later. We were both right out of high school.

  • My husband was in the Navy during 9/11, but once he got out, he stayed out (he wanted to switch positions, but since he was so good at his current position they wouldn't let him, so he left.)
