Navarras celebrate 55 years of marriage
Bob and Carol Navarra of Nanjemoy recently celebrated their 55th wedding anniversary with their children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren with a family dinner at the New York Italian Deli Restaurant in Brandywine. The couple was married Sept. 30, 1961 at Chapel #1 on Bolling Air Force Base in Washington, D.C.
While stationed at Bolling as a musician with the United State Air Force Band, Bob participated in hundreds of ceremonial events for seven U.S. Presidents, various other dignitaries and foreign Heads of State during his 24 years of military service. When the children reached their teens, Carol returned to the workforce as a business analyst and trainer for United Services Life Insurance Company (USLICO) in Arlington, Va.
During their retirements, the couple volunteered for several years in the local community. They enjoy dining out regularly as well as traveling domestically and internationally. The highlight of their travels was an 11-day vacation throughout Italy with their children and grandchildren in Sept. 2014.
