To be clear , I have nothing against non-veterans , it is just there is a certain bond that veterans share . Even across the different branches .
And married to a Woman Marine ( I think they no longer go by that moniker , but I am old school , sorry ) you deserve all the rights and benefits of a veteran LOL . WMs' that outrank you can be VERY scary when they unload on your butt !!!!!
My wife told me about the time that she got to witness a female Gunnery Sgt. (also a DI) go ballistic on a male Marine. The brass, rank, and belt went flying, and she proceeded to kick his butt in front of his buddies. Yup, I agree.
