Gregory App, Navy veteran and current military spouse, gives us a few myths about  male military spouses along with some useful tips and tricks.

So, what is a Myth anyway?

You know me. I asked the "Google lady" for a definition of the word myth. This is what she gave me.



1. a traditional story, especially one concerning the early history of a people or explaining some natural or social phenomenon, and typically involving supernatural beings or events.

"ancient Celtic myths"

Similar: folk tale, story, folk story, legend, tale, fable, saga, allegory, parable, tradition, lore, folklore, mythos, mythus

2. a widely held but false belief or idea.

"he wants to dispel the myth that sea kayaking is too risky or too strenuous"

Similar: misconception, fallacy, mistaken belief, false notion, misbelief


I know that the "Google lady" is not a female. That's my nickname for the voice I verbally "interact" with on my devices when "looking up" information. As a visually impared person, I use the accessibility features of technologies all the time. Nicknames help, especially when I start thinking about how much of my life AI is consuming at the moment.
