31 Days of Military Life

I have decided to be a part of the 31 days of writing, which means writing every day in October. The theme for me was easy being a military veteran and spouse “31 Days of Military Life.” The topic needed to be broad and narrow. I hope I can share my insights into what being in the military from active duty and the home front is like.

Originally I wrote for five minutes, but in 2020 and 2021 I have gone through and updated the blog posts with more details and resources. I hope this updated series can help those looking for information about joining the military or new military spouses wanting to understand more about the military.  I will have a word to write on for five minutes and then I will post it to my blog. If you have a question about military life or are considering to join the military you can get your free guide here:


The first day begins with the word MOVE. What a perfect start to 31 Days of military life with moving. Moving is something that a huge part of military life. I have moved both as a service member and a military spouse. As a couple and a family.
