    The Military Compensation and Retirement Modernization Commission (MCRMC) on Jan. 29 publicly unveiled 15 major recommendations to Congress. Host Dave Etter will field all callers on whether this spells doom and gloom or dances of joy to the military families we struggle daily to keep afloat. Number to call in: (516) 453-9167 and voice your opinions!

    MMSRS is a weekly 2-hour web-based radio show, hosted by Dave Etter, focusing on the needs of men married to serving military members, both men and women. Male Military Spouses are a small niche of military spouses, comprising of only 7%-8% of all military spouses. We feel left out, usually, at support functions - especially those designed with the spouses being identified as "wives"! We get cajoled at playgrounds where our kids play, from the mommies there who think we don't belong. We are proud SAHDs, who gave up our careers to follow our spouses as they dedicate thier lives to defend our country! Here, on this show, we come together and share beer recipes, diaper changing techniques, financial discoveries - manly things, for men! Airs Fridays at Noon CT, rated R for the cussing that can occur, and available for download (podcast) immediately following each show.
