The Few, The Proud, and This Marine Wife (otherwise, simply known as ” And This Marine Wife”) is a website owned and edited by me (Lydia). All content on my site are based on my own opinions, thoughts, and experiences. I sometimes allow guest posts but only ones that line up with the views on my site. There may be some comments on posts that might not share the same views as this site.
As the owner of this site, I do accept forms of cash advertising, sponsorship, or other forms of compensation to provide my personal, professional opinion on products, services, websites, and the like. I am a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to Amazon.com. Any compensation received may influence the content, topics, and/or posts published on this site. I, however, try to be sure that whatever compensated posts I write still line up with the overall content published on this site.
Even though I receive compensation for posts, advertisements and links, all views and opinions expressed in my posts are entirely my own. I do not write about a product or service that I have not first tried myself, and no amount of compensation steers me from giving my true, honest opinion on said product or service. I do not endorse anything that does not line up with the views on this site. Any product claim, quote, statistic or anything else promoted by the manufacturer should be verified by the manufacturer, provider or party in question.
This site follows “word of mouth” marketing standards, so whenever I publish paid/sponsored content or links, they are identified as such. If I fail to identify these at any point, it is a mistake on my part, and I will resolve the problem as soon as I am made aware of the situation.
For any further questions about my site, you are welcome to contact me.
When I post affiliate links, I do receive a small percentage of compensation for whatever purchase is made at no addition cost to the individual making the purchase.
The compensation received is in exchange for the effort and work that website owners put into maintaining and managing their website.
