As a male military spouse for the last 15 years, I have experienced the challenges common to all military spouses. I'm still moving and leaving friends, extended family and great jobs behind. I face the "starting over" blahs with more resolve and a better attitude now than I did 15 years ago, but it still sucks to start over. The sad part is that I fought through many of these challenges and later found out that I didn't have to fight most of the time. What I didn't know made the journey a lot more difficult.

At first, I didn't know where to go to get answers about stuff I was dealing with as a military spouse. When I did find information and resources, they didn't fit me. Not having the "right questions" was a big problem for me in the beginning. The biggest question in my head then was, "How am I supposed to do this?" The worst part about it is that I went about things on my own, feeling alone and thinking that no one could possibly understand me.

As I continue to seek out ways to help others avoid the missteps I made and the subsequent negative consequences, I'm looking for others like me who are trying to do the same. I found the Macho Spouse videos one day while searching the web for resources and information to pass on to other male military spouses. I found a couple of online male military spouse communities, but what set Macho Spouse apart to me was the quality of the videos and the way the Man-to-Man videos spoke to my situation. After watching a couple of the videos, I called Chris Pape and asked how I could help.

I've been a "loner" for as long as I can remember and I'm an introvert. So, calling a total stranger out of the blue is not something I do. But I think I might have talked with Chris almost an hour and we started working on a plan to redesign the MachoSpouse website. Hey, building websites is what I do and it's one of the ways I can help get the word out about this great resource I found that speaks to male military spouses.
