    Just got the message (second hand) that DSIL (dear son-in-law) got to bathe for the first time since deployment began two months ago - DD (1st LT USMC stationed in Camp Lejeune) reported that the message made her happy:shake:

    I meant to put this little tid-bit on the "Questions about Navy SEALS" thread - oops, still getting the hang of proper forum operations anyway, the original poster of that thread was asking what the lifestyle of US Navy SEALS was like- and I can only offer a very limited view as a mother-in-law of a Navy SEAL officer's lifestyle. In a word...it is a lifestyle that is extraordinary in every way, as in nothing ordinary about it...whether the SEAL officer is deployed, training stateside, dating/marrying another USNA graduate who is now a Marine LT stationed in NC while he is far far away in some undisclosed place with no running water and dwindling food supplies and doing goodness knows what as is the case with my DD Marine and DSIL SEAL . But what struck me today was how something so ordinary to us back on American soil, as in regular bathing, can also be in the "extraordinary" realm for a Navy SEAL! I mean really...TWO MONTHS ...no bath, shower???!!...but as DD pointed out, "they're all guys...and after awhile there really is no way to even smell anything at all...good or bad!" Heroes in every sense...in all five senses!!!:w00t:
