MachoSpouse.com has been added to the Veteran's Advantage “Sites of Distinction” honor roll!
A Site of Distinction is awarded after a special Veteran's Advantage review of excellence in content and design and a focus on the respect, recognition, and rewards of US Veterans, active duty military, and their families. Some of the more recognizable members of this honor roll are the Fisher House, USO, American Red Cross, and Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (TAPS). It's humbling to be on this list.
So, what is Veteran's Advantage? They are a national program that partners with corporations who want to honor and thank all who serve. These partner companies show appreciation by providing preferred pricing on their goods and services everyday. You may have heard of some these companies: United, Foot Locker, Dell, Amtrack, Wendy's, Avis, Apple, Ford, HBO, Tmobile, and on and on and on. Yes, there is a fee, but they offer a free 30 day trial and their one-year family plans are only $29.97. They sent us a card last month and we're currently testing, we will report back as soon as we get enough data to write a solid review. However, at first glance, this looks like a pretty good deal. If you don't want to wait for our review, you can research these guys yourself at: VeteransAdvantage.com.
With all the stresses and demands in our daily lives, we sometimes forget about showing appreciation to the ones we love most. A simple, heart-felt compliment, or "thank you," can go a long way to keeping your marriage healthy and strong. In this "Quick Hitter" video, Elizabeth Cabibi, M.S.,LMFT (Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist), talks about the importance of sharing mutual appreciation in any relationship.
Participating in the Coast Guard's Run to Remember is an excellent way to show your support for military families! For more information, visit CoastGuardFoundation.org.
November is Military Families Appreciation Month, and the 2014 Armed Forces Insurance Branch Spouses of the Year (Branch SOYs) want to help everyone, everywhere participate in thanking and honoring military families.
Americans love our military, but many people don't quite know how best to express their gratitude. As National Guard Spouse of the Year Dr. Ingrid Herrera-Yee notes, “saying "thanks" to our military families is something that many want to do, but are at a loss as to how to do it –or in the case of Guard and Reserve, how to find us!”
So the Branch SOYs created #30Ways of Thanks to help. Each day in November, the Branch SOYs will release a video with an action item that people around the country can participate in virtually or locally, individually or in groups. Participants can hash tag #30Ways so that their messages, photos, or videos are spread far and wide. Hash tags #GratefulNation and #MilFamsRock can also be added as a short-hand way to say “You are amazing, military families!” Best of all, the entire #30Ways video collection will be stored on the Branch SOYs' YouTube channel so that it can be repeated in Novembers to come, or whenever someone is looking for a way to say “thank you” to military families.
