GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) - Nicole Ribet said staying busy is how she gets through the many months when her husband is deployed. Nicole, a coast native, is the wife of a Seabee stationed in Gulfport.
Nicole described her husband, David, as, "The nicest man I have ever met."
The two met about eight years ago, and Nicole said they both knew there was something special there.
"We just communicated through e-mails, letters and phone calls, and I guess it was just the classic you fall in love story," Nicole said.
Not long after he got back from that deployment, Nicole and David married. Two weeks later, he was gone again on another six month deployment.
Then, just weeks after he left, Katrina hit the Mississippi Coast. As the storm roared ashore, Nicole, along with her daughter and parents, stood on the roof of their house as 16 feet of water inundated their home.
"I was thinking, 'I am never going to see him again,' and my daughter of course was frantic," Nicole said.
Fortunately they all survived the storm. Three days later, Nicole was finally able to speak with her new husband. She said they just kept telling each other how much they loved one another while fighting back tears.
After those kinds of experiences, Nicole certainly understands the special demands of being a Seabee wife. Part of her own personal escape, is through her music. She is a full time music major at USM. She feels that while she is making her music, David is never far from her heart.
Nicole ended our interview by telling us about the Seabee's 'can do' spirit. She said many of the Seabee spouses have that same spirit running through their veins.
