NAVY REENLISTMENT CEREMONY

It’s no secret that we do not enjoy the downsides of navy submarine life or navy and military life in general. So it make come as a shock that right before Mike’s sea duty time was up, he reenlisted for another 4 years.

The video below shows the day of his Navy Reenlistment Ceremony on the USS UTAH on Ford Island Hawaii.

In short, Mike’s goal was to spend as little time on an active submarine as possible. This meant that when his contract was up, his choice was to spend ANOTHER year in Hawaii on the submarine or reenlist for shore duty in Charleston SC for 4 years which is still navy life but with a much easier job.

Can you guess what we decided?

Stationed In Hawaii | Military Life

My adventure in Hawaii started the day after New Years in 2012. I made the most random decision to move out to the island with no job, no money and barely knowing one person. With a lot of growth and hard work, Hawaii became my comfort zone.

Hawaii is also where my husband Mike was stationed at the same time. We met out here in the Spring of 2012, lost touch and then fell in love about a year later. While my time on the island felt expired, because he was stationed in hawaii, we had to stick it out and make the best of it.

Believe it or not, there are a lot of negatives to living in paradise, but here are 5 reasons why its a good idea to be stationed in Hawaii.
