Milspouse on a Mission Category
No matter how you try, or how many times you endure it, you can never truly prepare for a deployment. And indeed military spouses have to prepare. While your service member prepares to leave, you have to prepare for his/her absence. One milspouse shares her thoughts.
Community, support and sisters linked not by blood, but by a cause. These are all things many military spouses envision, crave and even hope for, especially when they foray into their first year of military life. Some milspouses find those things. Others find themselves constantly battling to find their way in a system that was not made for them. After years of struggling to find their own niche in an unpredictable world, one group of women decided to forge their own community in a very special way.
Military spouses encounter so many barriers to employment and often have to leave their own careers behind (because: military life). But we shouldn’t be penalized, simply because of who we love.
