Military.com’s Spouse Experience is a one-of-a-kind interactive event presented by military spouses for military spouses.
Every year Military.com’s Spouse Experience brings together thousands of military spouses to extend support to the women and men on the homefront. The event is an opportunity for all military spouses to get together, learn from each other, share the joys and challenges of military life, and laugh at the inevitable and incredible “oops” moments that all MilSpouses have. In a fast-paced, on-your-feet, NO-Power-Point, win-a-prize workshop, the SpouseBuzz experts bring their best insider tips on the top four concerns of military spouses.
This is a free event for all past, present and future military spouses.
