I wouldn't say it's an awesome love story but still a little out of the ordinary. We were in the Navy and both stationed on the USS Kittyhawk in Japan. We worked in different shops but had the same master chief in charge of our shops so we saw each other a lot. He's from Pittsburgh and just sort of came off as kind of a hick so I wasn't really interested. I took notice of him one day because he made a comment about Ernest Hemingway and the book the The Sun Also Rises. After talking to a lot more, I was impressed because he is actually really smart and a whiz at math. One day we ran into each other on base and he asked if I wanted to go eat lunch; I said yes even though I had just eaten lunch to spend time with him. We were pretty much inseparable after that until I was transferred. My eight years were up shortly after my transfer so we got married and he also got out and we moved back to the town I grew up in. The rest is history and we've been married for 14 years.
