We met the week before Christmas, in 1974, at McGuire AFB in New Jersey. We were married on the 29th of March in 1975. My Commander, at that time, felt that there was no way it would last. I was able to get in contact with him last year and let him know that all was very well. We are now both retired from the U.S. Air Force ..... I spent 23 years on active duty while my wife (Linda) spent 24 years on active duty. In this era of short, multiple, or no marriages, I find it comforting to know that we found each other and knew immediately that it would work for us. I can only hope that there are still many years ahead of us ...... Linda Irene Pinkham - I Love You! That was 'Then' This is 'Now'
