The Association of the United States Army has a great article that you should check out.

Resiliency: Male military spouse style features Wayne Perry talking about how male military spouses are finding ways to build resilient communities. Macho Spouse is one such community.


Here is part of the AUSA article:

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.

SAHD Life: Doing My Daughter's Hair for School

doing hair for school

As a male military spouse and Stay-At-Home-Dad (SAHD), learning to properly care for my daughter's hair has been a challenging and rewarding experience.

Doing my hair is simple. I've been cutting my own hair since my Air Force Academy days. I don't waste time worrying about my hair style anymore, I just shave it all off. I cut as low as my shears will allow me to and then I use my Norelco face shaver to shave the sides and back of my head. My haircuts are free and done in 15 minutes, but I could not imagine being able to perfect doing my daughter's hair in the same amount of time.

The big question for me used to be, "How do I do this?" How do I quickly do my daughter's hair in a way that looks nice and still allows me to get her to school on time?
