Alison Bess-Holcomb

I was raised in a military family and married a career military man. It was the only life I knew and seemed normal to move all the time. I counted up the times we relocated and came up with Twenty-four different addresses. Then I counted the times I moved with my Navy father: Eighteen. So don't ask me where I'm from...

I started writing stories about my experiences as a Navy daughter and wife for my kids and then I tried a little poetry, so what you will read here is the result of that effort.

I've tried to make these poems a composite of military life as experienced by any wife and mother, in any of our military branches. If you see yourself as that military wife, girlfriend or fiancée, then I have succeeded and all I can say is: Aren't we lucky to share this great life with the guys (always our heroes!) we love.





But most of all: YOU GO GIRL!

At this age it's difficult to tell what's in store for the poor cat...
