'Simply proud to be his wife'
My husband is the Anti Submarine Warfare Officer aboard the USS Princeton, CG-59. This is a picture of him posing with several of the ships in his battlegroup. The two closest are aircraft carriers. He was standing onboard the USS Nimitz when this picture was taken. He is currently deployed somewhere in the Persian Gulf.
I simply want to let my husband know that I am proud to be his wife and support him in all he does.
-- Cary Jenkins of Pensacola, Florida
