I am married to a member of the U.S. Merchant Marine. Specifically, married to a Chief Engineer. Thus the name Snipe Wife. While in some circles "Snipe" is a derogatory term for engineers, I use it with pride and affection. Ours is not a unique situation but it is far less common than most. This is for everyone who asks me what is the Merchant Marine and how do I handle the "life."
