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.

3. Military.com Base Locator

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.

2. MilitaryBases.com

You can browse by state and see the different military bases in the United States and overseas. This site gets bonus points because you can learn more about each base, get directions, find housing nearby, look at hotel rates for the area. 

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.

30 Ways of Thanks Day #29

30Still.jpgMilitary spouses make amazing employees, and entrepreneurs. If you have skills in things like professional development, or how to start a business, consider mentoring a military spouse!

 

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.

How would you feel if your child wanted to enlist in the military?

One of my Google alerts had the following article from Lifetime Moms (Lifetime - you know, the channel with all the dramas?...Oh, you don't know?).

Anyway, the post, Military Wife On The Mic: The Biggest Misconception About Military Life, has a video of Army wife and "Lifetime Mom", Angela Caban, at the 2013 Military.com Spouse Summit. In the video, Angela asks several military wives, "How would you feel if your child wanted to enlist in the military?" Since I know that most of you probably won't venture over to the Lifetime website, I decided to bring the question to you.

So, here is the question again for you male military spouses. How would you feel if your child wanted to enlist in the military?
