These Life Lessons from Military Spouses are Important for Everyone to Hear
Being married to the military is a wild ride! There are very few days where things are "normal". Our community can experience many hardships over the course of one year — it can be difficult to remember all the good being a military spouse has taught us. As Spring approaches, so too does the almighty permanent change of station (PCS) season! This is when military communities all over the country will be in flux, households will be packed away and moved across the country or across the world.
I wouldn't change being a military spouse for anything in the world. The men and women I have met in this life have been my teachers, my confidants, and my shoulders to cry on (many of the women I have met I count as my sisters). The lessons we all learn can be universal life lessons or just very specific experiences to being a military spouse. But if you're transitioning from one life phase to the next, you might find some pearls of wisdom in our experiences.
Please note: Last names of these spouses will not be shared due to OPSEC regulations. We take the health, wellness, and security of our service members and their families very seriously.
