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.

30 Ways o Thanks Day #13

30Still.jpgDon't forget the National Guard and Reserves when it comes to thanking a military family for their service!

 

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.
