I am very proud to be the wife of a Marine. We were married when we left for boot camp and so I feel a very strong attachment to the family I'm making in the corps. I got this tattoo in honor of my husband. I designed it myself and a wonderful artist in Port Clinton, OH. made it just what I had envisioned. I usually have to explain it to civilians, but when I'm out Marines spot it from across the room, I have been criticized for it, but being the wife of a Marine is part of who I am, and I am proud to be one of the few women who can handle the job.
