    MMSRS 61 - What Makes a good Military Spouse?

    in Military

    Join host Dave Etter and assorted callers as we try and define what makes a good military spouse! Us guts do not have much in print on how to be that perfect partner while maintaining the standards set by the military branch we are forced to live with - so, what can we gleen from each other? This could get interesting, heated, nasty, sad, frustrating, fun.... who knows? You'll just have to listen and call in if it's during the live recording time!


    MMSRS is a weekly 2-hour web-based call-in radio show (516-453-9167), 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! Typically airs Fridays at 9am CT, rated R for the cussing that can occur, and always available for download (podcast) immediately following each show.

    Military Monday with USNI Press Author Dwight Hughes – A CONFEDERATE BIOGRAPHY

    in History

     Most Americans, when they think about the Civil War, probably remember the great land battles like Gettysburg and Shiloh, not realizing that there also was a significant maritime conflict as well. From inland waterways to the deep oceans, Union and Confederate naval forces were engaged in a four-year struggle for control of the trade routes to and from North America. One key campaign was the Confederate attempt to interdict key Union maritime activities, particularly whaling ships which supplied important oil products. To accomplish this task, Confederate Secretary of the Navy Stephen Mallory commissioned and acquired a small number of armed merchant cruisers, mostly from Great Britain. Though few in number, these merchant cruisers harassed Union trade routes across the globe, and required the Union Navy to commit valuable resources to hunt them down. Along the way their captains and crews became legends in the annals of American naval history.


    To learn more about the Confederate commerce raiding campaign, tune into this week's edition of Military Monday (#MilitaryMonday on the Writestream Radio Network (@Writestream)) at 1 PM EST. Author, historian, journalist, documentary filmmaker, and host John D. Gresham (@greshamj01) has invited U.S. Naval Institute Press (@USNIBooks) author Dwight Hughes to discuss his new book, A CONFEDERATE BIOGRAPHY.  The book chronicles the voyage of the Confederate merchant cruiser CSS Shenandoah, which in 1864 and 1865, circumnavigated the globe on an epic wartime cruise. Listeners are encouraged to call in and offer questions and opinions to both gentlemen, in what will be certainly an intriguing hour.

    The Fabric of Military Families with Dr. Rita Spilken

    in Non-Profit

    Dr. Rita Spilken said, "since receiving our State of Missouri charter in 2005, we have been committed to the rehabilitation of men and women who, after returning from deployment go home to their loving husbands, wives, and children only to discover, not soon afterward, they are unable to stand the pressure of home life and leave because of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) experiences and/or Military Sexual Trauma (MST) only to become one more homeless statistic."


    Most recently, this organization has become aware of, and very alarmed about, our brave young female soldiers who are being sexually assaulted and/or raped. In her 3/9/2010 article Female Soldiers: Forgotten Heroes Project, Kara O’ Connor, Villager staff writer wrote “Unfortunately, according to recent statistics, female veterans are becoming homeless faster than their male counterparts, and compared to females that have never served in the military, female veterans are 3.6 times more likely to become homeless.”



    According to the U.S Census Bureau, from 2008 –present there are 1.8 million women in the military.
    1 out of 5 female soldiers/veterans have been sexually assaulted and or/raped. (2)


    “Women in the U.S. military are more likely to be raped by fellow soldiers than killed by enemy fire. I know what you are thinking – it sounds too unbelievable to be true. But it’s not”.


    Here, in Missouri, as of 2008 – 2010, 38,000 females have joined the service and, are deployed.
