How to Stay Involved with Your Military Community Virtually
Military Spouses need a strong support network for a couple of very important reasons. Your “tribe” knows the hardship of frequent moves and deployment, being away from your spouse and constantly juggling parenthood and a career.
But, the most difficult part of finding that “tribe” is knowing that you (or they) might have to move at any given moment. That’s where virtual communities can come in handy. In addition to those you meet on base, your online community — and all the connections in it — will travel with you.

Facebook Groups for Military Spouses
Facebook Groups are another great way to find those you share interests with, and Military Spouses have many different groups to choose from to include in their online community. Whether you are planning a PCS move, needing a place to vent, or struggling with certain life issues, there is a Facebook Group waiting to help you.
Here are a few to try:
- Moving the MILLIE Way: Hosted by Millie, this group “is a supportive space for military spouses to exchange information, resources, and form connections no matter where they find themselves on a PCS timeline.”
- The Men’s Room for Male Military Spouses: Created by Macho Spouse, The Men’s Room is a group specifically designed to “help male military spouses connect with one another and assure one other that we are not alone in this military family lifestyle.”
- Military Wives Infertility Support Group: This online support group was “designed for military wives (veteran, retired or active duty spouse) or active duty/veteran women dealing with infertility.”
