Military Spouse Appreciation: Being a military spouse means you are your soldier’s backbone. You support them in everything their job entails. You are the one to stop everything, leave your life and loved ones behind, and pack up your family to move across the world to be with your spouse.

Seeking Spicy in Seoul: A friend of mine from Hong Kong came to visit for a few days and I just had to find a dakgalbi restaurant. When I first arrived at Camp Humphreys, my husband and I spotted and tried one in AK Plaza, but weren’t so impressed by the flavors. So I began my research...

Army Entertainment:
If the mention of Army Entertainment has got you scratching your head and wondering, “What’s that?” don’t worry. A couple of years ago I was doing the same thing. While working for the American Forces Network (AFN) at Camp Darby in beautiful Tuscany, Italy, I received an email that perked my interest in opportunities with the organization.

Summer PCS: Once the days start getting longer and the end of the school year is just on the horizon, you inevitably see more and more moving vans along the street. It is the beginning of PCS season on bases and posts all over the country. For those who have another year or two before they have to pick up and head out somewhere new, there is a sigh of relief knowing they are staying put. But, for those who have to make their way to a new place on their military journey, PCS season means excitement, panic, anticipation, chaos, stress, fear, and lots of goodbyes followed by an equal number of hello’s.

Military Family: Being a military family is like being part of a secret society -- a special language, an unusually strong common bond, and very few members. Less than 1 percent of Americans are in our  military with a little over half being married. That's a mere 880,000 of the over 323 million Americans living in our country today. Among that small community there is pride, sacrifice and strength that few outsiders will ever know.

All Army Softball: Every year when the weather starts to get warm, SSG Kenneth Turlington gets that itch to swing a bat and starts counting down the days until All Army softball camp. Turlington has played on the All Army Men’s Softball team every year since 2008. But being a veteran doesn’t give you an automatic spot on the team. Every year, men and women will go to camp where their skills will be tested and evaluated. Twenty-five soldiers will be selected from over 100 applications and only 15 will make it for each men’s and women’s teams. Continue reading...

Spouse Appreciation:
 There is no doubt that our nations service members should be appreciated and recognized, but we can’t forget the foundation of the home and that is the military spouses. Spouses may not be on the warfront, but they battle dealing with deployments, moving their families around and having to assimilate to new places and people. Being a military spouse is a tough task and they should be recognized just the same for the sacrifices they make to support their service member.

Spouse Appreciation Day:  The President has declared May 11 Spouse Appreciation Day for all military spouses. While military spouses do not have to take an oath of service, most everyone agrees they all serve and sacrifice in many of the same ways. Having a proclamation acknowledge and honor the role of the military spouse in our homes, communities, our military and our country is well deserved and much appreciated. Even though many of us do feel that sense of appreciation from our service member spouses, our children, our friends and our communities, having an official acknowledgment is important in many ways.
