Male Military Spouse Radio Show on Blog Talk Radio

How many of you guys have had the opportunity to listen to Dave Etter's blog talk radio show?  If you haven't heard the MaleMilitary Spouse Rasio Show yet, well, it's a work in progress and that lack of show polish is just the way he wants it. 

Dave is retired from the Navy and currently married to an Army medic, he has also volunteered as a Family Readiness Group Leader while stationed at Ft Campbell.  So, to say Dave (aka “Old Fart”) is an opinionated, straight-shooter, who often times fires “from the hip” and checks his facts later, would be an accurate statement. 

I can joke about him because I know he can take it. Hell, many times he insists on it!

Veterans Info Site a Resource for US Military Veterans

I did a "soft launch" of the Veterans Info Site website today. The official launch of the website will be in mid-March.

The VeteransInfoSIte.com is intended to provide a single Resource Center for our US Military Veterans and their family members. Specific and current Information related to Benefits, Housing, Employment and Medical Assistance is provided in an accurate and timely manner.

This project is VERY special to me because I am always seeking ways to help those who serve - and have served - their country. As a veteran abd civilian male military spouse, I see the importance of having timely information regarding Veterans benefits and services.

VeteransInfoSIte.com is one way that I can help Veterans get the info they need.

My Military Life motivates and encourages spouses to follow their dreams

We have had the opportunity to hang out with the Founder/Director of My Military Life, Wendy Poling, at three different events this year (Inc 500, NMSN , and USAA's Blogger Conference) and she is pretty damn cool. Wendy has been very generous with her time, knowledge, and experience as we try to build Macho Spouse into something special.

US Military Ranks for Officers and Enlisted

Military RanksIf you spend a lot of time on Xbox 360 playing Call of Duty or Halo, you may have a decent handle on the US Military Ranks for Officers and Enlisted for one or maybe two branches of service. However, you can't rely on "gamer cred" to help you remember all of the ranks for all of the US military Service branches.

Here are some rank insignia charts for the United States Army, Air Force, Navy, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard. Learn 'em. It's good to know who your wife salutes or who has to salute your wife.

(Oh, and gamers don't look for those high ranks and insignia that you see in Call of Duty. They're not real.)
