Default Greeting fellow Brits

My name is Ceri. I have lived in the US for 15 years. My husband is in the US Air Force so we travel around often. I have been able to get most of my family to move over as well. Immigrations are long and challenging but it can be done.

Do any of you live in Northern CAL, or are any of you in or married to someone in the Armed Forces?

If she's just coming to visit, and is staying for less than 90 days, she should be able to come in on the visa waiver program. The only paperwork she's have to fill out, is the green visa waiver form, and the customs form, and you get both on the plane.

Anyway, welcome aboard!
And are you actually from Southampton, if you are you're not far from my old neck of the woods.

Welcome to BE!

My hubby was in the USAF, but got out Nov 2005.

We were based at RAF Croughton for 5 years.

You might want to up that number a bit, I think there are at least 6 of us, probably more that I don't know of though! Anyway, Welcome!

We have been in the USAF for 10 years. My husband is a Captain so we will probably retire unless we win the lottery or something.
