We would like to have anyone come visit a brand new blog established for military spouses to discuss issues involving the troops/veterans, their spouses and their families issues.
It is not necessary to be a military spouse to join but it is anticipated that anyone who joins will follow the guidelines outlined on the site. There are some very unique issues and problems that military spouses face both in supporting their spouse and handling the "homefront" and dealing with the VA healthcare system and other military bureaucracies. Anyone might find the discussions interesting.
Come on over and check it out.
