Volunteer With Us! Change the Rules of the Game!

photo-1-(3)Being a volunteer means doing what you love and fighting for issues you are passionate about. As a military spouse, you might be inclined to think you don’t make much of a difference in the Uniformed Service. Don’t be fooled! All it takes is your strong voice and persistence to change the lives of military families everywhere.

When you join the Association as a Volunteer, you are immediately welcomed to this extended military family. You meet and interact with fellow military spouses, whom you can relate to. The more involved you get, the more you see the difference you make. When I first heard about the Association, I was amazed at what a handful of military spouses were able to accomplish. I did not know much about the military, but I immediately knew I wanted to get involved and help military families. Having a background in journalism and communication, I decided to contribute my skills and write for the Association’s publications. This has been a very rewarding experience, because I could make the voices of military families heard.

What I love most about volunteering for the Association is knowing that what I do affects military families at a national level. Through monthly reporting to the Association, Volunteers give a voice to the issues impacting their community. That’s what it’s all about. You don’t need to wait for someone else to take a stand, you can make all the difference by sharing what you know today!

It all starts with the dedicated Volunteer who introduced you to the Association in the first place. From there it grows into a network of like-minded military spouses. By representing the Association at various events, you gain credibility and people begin paying attention to your message. The network you create will not only support you in your efforts and offer mentorship, but can also help you land your dream job. Connections and networks made through Volunteering with our Association go with you wherever you move!

The most exciting part of being a Volunteer is the connections I’ve made along the way. It has been a wonderful journey that opened the door to a lot of opportunities and ultimately lead to my current position with the Association, as a Content Specialist for MyMilitaryLife app.

  2. Not sure if I could be any help, but would love to! We just found out that we are moving back to our beloved Arkansas this summer! My husband is currently at Andrews and up until just recently, I worked directly with our nations Veterans at the VA hospital. I gained some great experience and grew so much as an individual while working with our Veterans and their families!
