Manning the Homefront has made great strides this year, according to Perry.  The group launched a website--machospouse.com--named its first male military spouse of the year, and is"growing by leaps and bounds,"he said. It now has some 95 members from all services, some referred to the group by military wives who know of it.

Perry called the current number of male spouses in the Army--20,000 apart from another 16,000 who are part of dual military couples--"staggering."  He said the number is on the rise as more women join the military. Counting dual military couples, he said, male spouses are part of  9 percent of marriages in the Army as well as 34 percent of divorces.

Marine Corps Considers Allowing Homesteading - Is the PCS Going Away?

As a military spouse, it's hard for me to miss all of the talk on the news about the Federal Government looking for things to cut from the budget. The buzz around my very small military circle of friends has included mentions of "budget cuts" since the beginning of this year. I can think of many different ways the military can save money and I was happy to see a story about the Marine Corps considering one of my ideas - "homesteading."
