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.

How I Had the Best Summer Ever...While My Wife was Deployed

RobSitePic.jpgSince I've been married, one of the best summers I've had was when my wife was deployed.  Sounds crazy and maybe a little insensitive to my wife...but it's true!

First of all, don't get me wrong -- holding down the home front during the deployment was one of the hardest things I've been through. But without the structure of my wife's workweek I was able to spend the summer exploring the great outdoors with our 2 boys. We went on one camping trip after another, any day of the week. A couple times I didn't even bother unpacking the truck when we got home. I just did some laundry, re-packed the cooler, and after a day or two at home we headed back out to another National Park.
