Dating navy men
Because mail delivery is uncertain, I planned ahead and sent cards with him when he left on deployment.I knew he would be gone for Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years, Valentines, Easter, etc., so I bought cards ahead of time.(I’m not discriminating by saying ‘he,’ but there are only a very, very few number of ladies on submarines and typing s/he gets cumbersome!) If you send a card or letter, you can use a regular stamp. Natasha is dating a submariner, and honestly, I don’t know how she does it!

It is possible to stay in touch with a submariner, it just takes some planning, effort, and a bit of understanding.
It was difficult at times, but we managed to emerge from an eight month long ‘six month deployment’ stronger than when he left, and communication was key.
I know from working in a gift shop that sold cards that many card shops keep out of season cards in store, just not on display.
If you talk to store employees and explain the situation, they’ll probably help you find the holiday cards you need.
