In 1995-2001I was part of an orchestra that traveled all over the world performing concert.
We were in Hawaii in 1995 for 3 concerts and we had 1 day off to do whatever we wanted to do. I chose to go to the Arizona memorial and Pearl Harbor with 3 friends. We stopped at a large shopping mall to buy trinkets, and they ditched me there. I freaked out and being only 15 years old didn't know what to do. As I was looking for a mall security, this taller skinny gentleman came up to me and asked if I was ok. I was crying, etc. I didn't talk to him at first, he showed me his military ID and said he would take me to the security office. No one was at the office and I tried several times to call people from te orchestra and couldn't get ahold of anyone. The marine then asked if I wanted a ride back to where we were staying. We get in his car(a white 1991 ford mustang) and headed off to our hotel. We got to talking and I told him I was disappointed I didn't get to see the arazona memorial. He turned around, took me to the memorial and Pearl Harbor.
He got me lunch and took me back to our hotel and left me there.
HE had given me his email address and being young and foolish, I didn't pay any attention to it.
I grew up, went to college, met and married a guy, we had 2 daughters, he started abusing me, name calling etc. he broke my self esteem and I stopped caring about anything. We divorced and I moved On with my life.
One day a family friend was talking to me and told me he had a Army buddy who was single and looking for a good girl and could he give me his email address.
Lo and behold it was the exact same email address that I had been given back in 1995.
We have been together ever since.
