Those That Keep The Home Fires Burning

Post by Maggie on Mon Sep 23, 2013 2:44 am

I'm blaming this entirely on my inability to skip A Few Good Men when it's on. There's something about that damn movie that intrigues me. I've swapped a few things around and I hope you don't mind.

Our Cast of Characters

The Kendricks: (The "Old" Married Couple)

2nd Lieutenant Jonathan James "Jack" Kendrick - Sixteen years of service to the Corps. Is a real hard ass to those he oversees but once he's home he's a real softy, not that he'll ever admit it to anyone. Has a deep love for his Corp and his country but an even deeper more sincere love for his wife. Birthday: November 24.

Michelle "Shelley" Kendrick - Former special education teacher now offers her time as a tutor and a church volunteer. Unofficial welcome person/tour guide/ go to babysitter of neighborhood children/mother hen to the newbies on the block no matter where home happens to be. Married her Marine when she was just a girl of nineteen. Birthday: September 1.

Anniversary: July 1, 2001
Children: None (but not for lack of trying)

The Donnellys: (The Newly Weds)

Lieutenant Junior Grade USN (JAG) Joseph Francis "Joe" Donnelly - Five years of Service to This Man's Navy, enlisted right after his law school graduation and hasn't looked back. First rotation living on base and is currently up to his ears in slap on the wrist cases. Sometimes wonders why he just didn't go into civilian law instead. Birthday: July 3.

Gwendolyn "Wendy" Donnelly - Recent graduate from the University of Maryland with a double masters major in Art history/restoration. Dated her Navy man for the better part of four years until he surprised her with a lovely little sparkler a year ago. Married him in a small ceremony against her Father's wishes. Still looking to put her degree to work but is enjoying life at the moment. Somewhat overwhelmed with base life but has a feeling she's made a new friend in her neighbor. Birthday: June 20.

Anniversary: June 4th ( Just approaching the three month marker)
Children: None (Haven't even considered them at this point)

Words can't amount to how much I am looking forward to this one. I really can't wait to see where it goes! I love all your characters and actually squeaked when I noticed you had called one of 'em Joseph Donnelly Wink nothing negative here so don't apologise for starting up another! the ladies have a very good sense of style.. I wish I had a dress or two like those. Also, your playlist is fabulous Very Happy I will most likely have it on repeat for the rest of the day.

Why thank you! I thought it would be a nice change up from Kaffee, not that I don't love him but still. I'm quite taken with their style myself, I do have to apologize that Wendy's dress isn't more of a fun color but from what I gather the Navy-Marine Corps and Navy Birthday Ball are quite full of pomp and circumstance so I went for Navy blue. ( I ended up having to ask my poor Dad about all what goes on at them. He summed it up as a "work function.") Thank you again! I was a little hesitant to put the cadences on there but I thought it would add a little bit for the setting. I tried to go by character for each song. Sending you major hugs for taking a gander! <3
