Introducing Branching Out

Welcome to the National Military Family Association’s new blog, Branching Out. We are excited to have a new way to connect with you!

As we work on launching this blog, we’re doing just what the name implies – branching out from our usual methods of communication to have a real conversation with you. But ‘branching out’ also reminds us of the military family tree and the wonderful way that we support each other and help each other grow.

This blog will be a place where we can talk about the hot topics of the day—breaking news, updates on issues we all care about, fun military family stories, volunteer highlights, donor spotlights, contests, and more. You name it – we want to blog about it!

But we can’t do it without your help. Tell us what you want to see on this blog – it’s your space! Email, Facebook, or tweet us with your feedback. Comment, start a discussion, or share a post with a friend. When Branching Out launches,  we want it to be your go-to military family blog!

Now that we’ve introduced Branching Out, we’d like to know a little about you. Tell us one or two of the following in a comment:

  • What is your military affiliation?
  • Are you a military spouse, partner, mom, dad, or sibling?
  • What branch of Service are you associated with?
  • What would you like to see in Branching Out in the future?

To stay up to date as we develop Branching Out, sign up for our monthly blog newsletter or subscribe to posts via email on the right.

  1. Hello and great of you to start this blog. I am the spouse of a retired Marine, we are in the mist of “Toys For Tots” this time of year. There’s a great Marine Corp league here and we try to help them with this worthy cause each year.
    This blog will be a great place to connect with other military families. My husband did twenty years in the USMC and this is the first place we have lived without a large military presence. I am looking forward to reading this blog. Much success

  2. Please consider making a statement of support of this spouse who is seeking access to the same support as all other military spouses, and help bring an end to this nonsense going on at Ft. Bragg. http://www.stripes.com/news/us/lesbian-military-spouse-rejects-fort-bragg-club-s-offer-to-be-special-guest-1.204446 I am a military spouse.
