From Elizabeth Bissett:

Hello - I was wondering if you have seen this article in Military Times? I and several of my woman American Legion Postmates were recently interviewed for that article. We are wanting the American Legion Auxiliary to change their membership requirements to allow our male spouses to join. Would you mind posting the link to the article on your Facebook page and other areas that your fellow male spouses frequent? Thank you, 

From the article:

Respect is why Post 204 came into being. Born out of what the women said was a need for sharing in a way only female vets can understand, the service members said they support each other in and out of meetings without judgment.

But they said they also have a looming concern about the organization that has come to offer them so much comradery: they want the same benefits their male counterparts are offered. They want their husbands to have a place within the American Legion organization.

The buzz around my very small military circle of friends has included mentions of "budget cuts" since the beginning of this year. I can think of many different ways the military can save money and I was happy to see a story about the Marine Corps considering one of my ideas - "homesteading."
