Military Officers Association of America (MOAA)This Friday, Macho Spouse Chris Pape will represent male military spouses at the 7th annual Military Spouse Symposium hosted by our friends at the Military Officers Association of America (MOAA). Chris will be one of the featured speakers at the event to talk about the support network for male military spouses we have here at Macho Spouse.

Military spouses, service members and veterans are invited to attend the 2013 MOAA Military Spouse Symposium “Keeping a Career on the Move,”  hosted by the Military Officers Association of America (MOAA).


White House - Joining ForcesNow, this is a big deal! How big of a deal is it? Well, it was enough to catch the interest of the White House. CAPT Todd Veazie, Executive Director of Joining Forces in the Office of the First Lady, posted this article about Targeted Career Advice for Military Spouses in the Pacific Northwest.

MOAA recognizes the importance of gainful, meaningful employment to military spouses and military families as a whole. This symposium is free and open to all military spouses - all ranks, active duty, retired, Reserve and National Guard. Plus, veterans and service members are also welcome.

There is still time to register for the 7th annual Military Spouse Symposium to be held in Tacoma, Washington from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Friday, February 8, at the University of Washington Tacoma (Philip Hall) 1918 Pacific Avenue, Tacoma, Wash., 98402.

How would you feel if your child wanted to enlist in the military?

One of my Google alerts had the following article from Lifetime Moms (Lifetime - you know, the channel with all the dramas?...Oh, you don't know?).

Anyway, the post, Military Wife On The Mic: The Biggest Misconception About Military Life, has a video of Army wife and "Lifetime Mom", Angela Caban, at the 2013 Military.com Spouse Summit. In the video, Angela asks several military wives, "How would you feel if your child wanted to enlist in the military?" Since I know that most of you probably won't venture over to the Lifetime website, I decided to bring the question to you.

So, here is the question again for you male military spouses. How would you feel if your child wanted to enlist in the military?

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder - Including the Children

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a serious battle injury we wanted to know more about, so we found Dr. Nicholas Lind, Co-Owner of Post Trauma Resources (Columbia, SC).  In this multi-part series, Dr. Lind defines PTSD, explains the symptoms, shares how and when to seek help, and offers insight into living with someone who struggles from post-traumatic stress.  In this fifth segment, Dr. Lind discusses the importance of including one's own children in the healing process.  Depending on the symptoms, children can learn valuable life lessons from watching, monitoring, and even participating in PTS rehabilitation.
