You and your partner are married the moment you exchange vows, rings, and a kiss in front of friends and family. And when you pass through the sword arch together, stealing a kiss for your right of passage, you are leaving your civilian life behind with each step. Until with a swift tap on the rear you are welcomed wholeheartedly into this huge military family.
Welcome to the world of a military spouse. You will be eligible to a bevy of benefits spanning from shopping at the commissary to free healthcare. In order to access these benefits, you need to take the energy you spent meeting with caterers, addressing invitations in perfect looping script and transfer that drive into walking around base and filling out stacks of paperwork.
