How my wife and I met. A little about our life and how I started my own business!
My name is Josh Vittetoe. I am 27 years old and have been married to my wonderful wife Jennifer Vittetoe who is 24 for almost 7 years. We have two boys who are Jack (6 months) and Tannar (5 years). We are currently stationed at Nellis AFB in Las Vegas, Nevada.
My wife has been in the Air Force for 3 years and is a Senior Airman. She is deploying in a coulpe weeks for the first time.
My wife and I met in Greeley, Colorado and fell in love right away. We never thought about the military until we went to visit family on their Air Force Base and we liked the type of lifestyle they had. I originally was going to join the Air Force and was told I could not because I have asthma. So my wife decided to and shortly after she was sent off to basic training.
I will admit for about the first year of living at Nellis I had some issues with making friends as I felt everyone thought something was wrong with me since my wife was military and I am not. Well 2.5 years later I am now friends with mostly active duty members and my wife has lots of stay at home mom's for her friends.
We have had some rough times and some great times being in the military. It has been a huge life changer for us. We have adapted to this new life we have and I would say 90% of the time it is great now.
I used to work for my wifes sqaudron and was only working part time due to the "budget". We then had our second child Jack! We were told by the CDC that they would want my whole paycheck to watch our children. That is when I left my wife's sqaudron and became a stay at home father.
The first month of being a stay at home father I was anxious....very anxious to be working. I ventured out and recieved a certification as a Performance Enchancement Specialist which is the advanced certification to a Personal Trainer. I of course did this with mycaa. I also started my own business and became a Beachbody Health and Fitness Coach! I have loved every minute of it. I get paid to help people get into shape and get healthy. It has for sure changed my whole families life as we are now the healthiest we have been in a long time! I also love being my own boss! I work when I want and I make a descent income and get to spend that much needed time with my family! I have a coach site that is www.beachbodycoach.com/josh2086 where you can see the products we offer and I also have a great health and fitness page on Facebook which is www.facebook.com/GETFITREV! (Please "like" it) Thanks!

Facebook groups are wonderful things that most people probably don't use to their full advantage. With a group, you can control who is in the group and even if the group can be found via search. This makes it perfect for chatting or sharing things that you don't want everyone to see.
1. To Keep In Touch With Friends and Family
Use groups to keep a conversation with your close friends or family. You can freely share things you many not feel comfortably sharing on just your Facebook page and it's great for planning events or large get together. It's also easier to keep up with everything than having to visit everyone's pages
2. Easier Communication With Your Spouse During Deployments
We all know that communication can be limited during deployment. There are pictures and stories you want to share with your spouse, but don't want everyone else to see, so share them in a group. You can limit it to just the two of you as members, then when he/she gets a chance to check in, they can see everything at once.
3. Network At A New Duty Station
The hardest thing to do at a new duty station is make friends and network. Find a Facebook group for your base. Ask questions about the area, learn about classes for fitness or other things that interest you, and even find babysitters.
4. Keep Up With Your Spouse's Unit
A lot of units and FRG's have Facebook groups or pages. This can easily allow you to see what is going on with the unit and any upcoming events that may be of interest to you. These groups are especially helpful if the unit is gone for training or deployed.
5. Garage Sale Pages
Right? Facebook garage sale pages are great! You can easily buy and sell items and even find people for house cleaning or babysitters. Since it's a group, the admins should only allow people in your area to be included.
6. Entertainment Purposes
Groups can be started for anything, including news, current events, or your favorite TV show. If your spouse hates watching OITNB, talk about the episodes in a group with other fans.
7. Foster And Receive Support From Other Military Spouses
Have questions about benefits, PCSing, or military life in general, there's a group for that. If there isn't you can start one! Everything from <a_dropped style="color: #bb133e;" href="http://martinsburgcollege.edu/enroll-now/financial-assistance/" target="_blank">MyCAA for spouses to wounded warrior wives.
8. Helping To Reach New Goals
Looking to grow your business or go back to school? Find a supportive group of like-minded people to answer any questions and help keep you motivated.</p
