    10 Military Spouse Blogs We Think You'll Love

    Military spouse bloggers are people who likely noticed inefficiency somewhere along the way in their military lives. Whether at the commissary, within the command, at the doctor's, undoubtedly at the pharmacy, and in plenty of other places, these inefficiencies stoked their ingenuity (sometimes survival instincts!). We, as readers, are much better for their advice, opinions, and hard-earned wisdom. 

    Their topics are as varied as their personalities, but you can bet experiences with their servicemembers and families are huge contributors to their blog entries. 

    Read on and pick some to follow because these milspouses know a few things about life in the military.
