Hear what women have to say about this board:

Within an hour of the time I first posted to the Military Wives board, I got a ton of replies. It was like being the most popular new kid in school!

I am not only a military wife, but an active duty soldier. Being "dual military" with five children raises a whole set of issues, and until I found the Military Wives board, I felt pretty much alone. Since becoming a member of this board, I have found so many new and wonderful friends and sisters. We are an amazing group of loving, supportive women who all share the commonality of being military wives.

In addition to sharing our joys, we have a place to share our trials and tribulations --deployments, military issues, having 'military brats', moving all over the world, living without your spouse, and a myriad of problems. This is an invaluable place for all of us to visit on a daily basis.

The most difficult part of being a military wife is the constant changes in our lives that are always out of our control. Our families are constantly uprooted; we leave behind friends and have to make new ones. The best thing about the Military Wives board is that no matter where any of us move, these friendships remain, whether we are in Japan, Germany or Texas! This is an amazing place for all of us to meet, share and support each other while our loved ones support our great country! -- soldiermomof3

Having a support system with the wives on this board has been amazing. There are days when things seem tough, being away from my friends and family. I am able to come here and I don't feel so lonely. The Military Wives board has taught me so much about what to expect from military life, and I don't feel so lost when it comes to military issues. Words just can't express what these ladies and this board means to me and how much it's helped me deal with all the new events in my life. -- fosterpink

I found this board one night when I was lonely because my husband was away on a deployment. I was looking for other women to talk to, and this board was just what I needed! Most the women here gone through some sort of separation at some point in their marriage. If you are having a bad day, this board will pick up your spirits. -- crawma69
