Couple reunites after being married over phone

August 26, 2003

Lowndes County - Nothing could keep Senior Airman James Evans from marrying his fiance, Andrea, not even being on different sides of the globe. "I found out I was being deployed again to an unknown location, and I wanted her to be taken care of if anything happened," said James.

So he arranged for them to be married over the phone. She was in Moody Air Force Base's chapel, and he was in the Middle East. "My entire flight was there to support me, some of the guys got a cake from the chow hall,and they threw rice at me when I came out of the building," said James.

Now they've been married almost 5 months, but they've only been in the same country for 2 weeks. "It's a lot better now," said Andrea.

The couple says finally being married was a great feeling. But being apart as newlyweds wasn't so easy. "It was lonely, of course," said Andrea. "Knowing she was here waiting on me is what got me through," said James.

James returned home August 15th. The past two weeks have been a semi honeymoon. "We've gone out to dinner a few times and just spent time together," said James. "Spent time playing with our animals, and relaxing," said Andrea.

But the real vacation is yet to come. "We're going on a cruise," said Andrea.

The Evans are planning a traditional ceremony with family and friends next month.
