    1. I was told by the recruiter I would learn to swim, but I was never given that option during the time I was in. Perhaps it depends on where you get stationed.


      1. My enlistment was only for 4 years. I did 3 years active duty. And 1 year in the reserves. I came off active duty a year early when I had my daughter. For the most part I did enjoy the experience and it was nice to meet different people.


  1. Dawn, you are a beautiful fragrance, loved your answers! Once again we think alike. Before I read this post I responded to the fact that you were posting your replies to the award. I too thanked you for being a bright spot in our writing community. 😀

      1. I re-blogged thinking I could just go in and change the content but it didn’t allow me to do that. I’m still learning how you all do it, do you just copy and paste and go back in and change everything?
