As a military spouse, you’re juggling a lot of things — and quite often, on your own. At SNHU, we respect and appreciate the important role you play in serving our country.
We connected with other military spouses, who share in your experiences and offer advice from their own.
We had the honor of recognizing military spouses, servicemembers and veterans throughout the world, who weren’t able to join us for graduation. Come along and see the surprises that occurred, with the help of their families, as we celebrated their successes globally.
The advice I would give to a new military spouse would be just relax, breathe, everything's going to be alright.
You're gonna meet some amazing people that you are going to forge such great friendships with.
I know that I can go anywhere. I'll fit in anywhere.
Take every day one day at a time and just know that they have to make their job a priority.
And sometimes that means family comes second. Don't take anything personally.
The job does come before you.
The military has its own agenda and you just have to go with the flow.
Start saving for retirement early.
You never know when they're going to get out.
How they're going to get out.
And just you want to be prepared for that day.
To get through a deployment I usually, I do try to find that one friend that I can lean on.
Branch out and make new friends and be out on deployments.
Kind of find your military family. It helps with the long nights and kids.
Its not gonna go as perfect as you hope. Something will go wrong.
But it will be ok.
You'll get through it and you will learn exactly how strong you are.
