Image: – Find Military Bases - Use These Base Locators to Find Military Installations Around The World – Macho Spouse


Whether you are new to military life as a civilian male military spouse, or you have been in the military life for years, you should know where military installations are located (epecially if your spouse just received orders).

Find Military Bases with these Military Base Locators. Use these Base Locators to Find Military Installations Around The World.

We're Moving Where?

My wife came home one day and told me she got her orders. Before she told me the installation, she told me I might want to sit down.

"Hill Air Force Base", she said.

"Where is that?", I asked.

"Utah.", she replied.

"Where is that?", I asked.

That was more than 17 years ago. But I remember the feeling, like everything stopped for that moment. I remember thinking, "We're moving where?"

I had to loohup Utah on a map. When I found it, I still kept thinking, "We're moving where?"

(Turned out to be one of the best places we have ever lived.)

Back then, I used AAA Triptiks  to find Hill AFB, Utah. Now, you can find military bases much easier  online. Here are my Top 3 Online Military Base Locators.

Pretty straight-forward military base listing with a map, so you can see where the installation is located. Click on a military installation link in the list (or the map) to see information about the military base.

1. "OK, Google..."

Using my phone or tablet, I just ask the "Google Lady" to tell me where a military base is. For example, I say, "OK, Google, WHere is Tinker, AFB?" The Google Lady tells where the base is and shows me a map and some other information.

Why number one? As a vision-impaired person, the OK Google voice commands help make finding information easier. Plus, I like talking to the Google Lady.

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?

Macho Spouse - The Name

chris-02.jpgAs our organization continues to grow and gains more attention from new people, I've learned that there is some confustion about our name.  In fact, I have been asked multiple times if our name, “Macho Spouse,” represented a sexist, homophobic point of view. My response to those questions is a simple, no.  Actually, the initial response is laughter and surprise with a slight dash of sorrow.  This perception is mostly my fault for not spending enough time explaining the meaning behind our name as we grow, leaving others to define “Macho Spouse” for us.  I chose our name after careful thought, consideration, and research.  I wanted a name that could illustrate our lifestyle while making people smile. I mean, if we can't have a laugh at some of the gender-reversed situations we find ourselves in, then we're taking life too seriously.

Macho Spouse represents a male spouse who has enough self-confidence in his masculinity to cook dinner, clean the house, wash the laundry, and take care of his children while his wife is away in combat.  We don't care what your race, religion, sex, or sexual preference is, if you're a military spouse who lives with honor and commitment to your family, you're a Macho Spouse and are always welcome here.

I appreciate your time and support, please help us by joining our conversation...or buying a shirt!  I hope this helps better explain who we are and what our name symbolizes. Now I must run along and kick something because I just learned my wife is deploying again.
