Army Dad is a blog by Tim Blake (Army Male Spouse).
From Army Dad:
"I'm a stay at home dad raising four beautiful children. I am the proud spouse of an Army Lieutenant Colonel. I do my best to keep up with the kids and all of their activities. I enjoy playing the bass and the occasional bass guitar building project. You can follow me on twitter if you so desire...@ArmySpouse007."
During this time of war, in addition to the regular attacks on our troops by enemy forces, there have also been other types of attacks. These "green on blue" attacks are "friendly" forces killing our troops. In 2011, there were 35 instances. In 2012 so far, there have beenÂ 51. These things get quite a bit of media coverage due to the loss of life as a direct result.
Something that concerns me just as much, if not more than "green on blue" attacks, is the threat that wears the same uniform as my wife. Sexual harassment and assault are a big problem within the military. Men and women are victimized by their comrades. As a Army civilian employee, I have to attend the Sexual Harassment/Assault Response and Prevention program, along with the Soldiers. It is saddening to hear the stories of those that have been attacked by people they trusted with their lives.
Tim shares some unique advice on how he and his wife handle re-integration after a deployment. Tim's well thought out plan and his ability to articulate it, makes this video a Macho Spouse favorite! (Run Time: 11:28...long, but worth it)
