As a military family, we experience major life events that we don't always know how to handle. Heck, marrying into the military is a life event in itself. You don't just get married, you also take on a whole new lifestyle.
So, now what? You've gotten married. Your new, married, military spouse life is exciting, yet a little scary. There's so much you don't know! You vaguely know where your spouse works, but what exactly is his command? What's the LES thing you've heard about and what is this weird alphabet they use?
The National Military Family Association wants to help. Founded in 1969, they are the leading non-profit organization focusing on issues important to military families. Their mission is to fight for benefits and programs that strengthen and protect Uniformed Service families and reflect the Nation's respect for their service.
The National Military Family Association already has a great website, but now they've got an even better app. MyMilitaryLife is a new app created to help military spouses navigate the many adventures of military life.
Download the app (it's free!!), answer a few basic questions, and get answers to all your questions.
Are you newly married and just need to know the basics?
Or maybe you are PCSing. Whether it's the first time or the fifth, moving with the military doesn't get easier.
You've just found out your spouse is deploying. It never gets easier hearing those words. Now what? How do you prepare yourself? How do you get ahold of your husband's command if the need arises?
Whether active duty, reserve, or guard, the MyMilitaryLife app can be helpful for all branches of the military.
