    MMSRS #38 - Military Spouse Appreciation Events: What's in it for Us?

    in Military

    Join host Dave Etter and various callers as the MenSpouses discuss past MSA events they have attended. You will laugh, cry, get angry, maybe even call in and give your two cents worth! (516) 453-9167.


    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.

    "Another Fork in the Road" Jeannette Davidson-Mayer, Caregiver - Military Spouse

    in Education

    When Jeannette Davidson-Mayer’s husband, DeWayne, had five brain injuries - the result of his active duty in Iraq - Jeannette became his caregiver. To combat this 24-hour job, Jeannette redesigned her kitchen to become the family’s “Central Command Post."  Jeannette will discuss how she, DeWayne, and their daughter make this system work for them.


    Every TBI survivor and caregiver has encountered a fork in the road that has diverted his or her life-plan. A car accident, a fall from the roof, doing one more chin-up, an IED blast, or a door literally slamming one in the face are just some causes of traumatic brain injury. College, walking down the aisle in the perfect dress, or the coveted job quickly slips from reality as dreams turn to struggle. These unexpected life-happenings that divert one from his or her chosen path in life can be devastating.


    But as Yogi Berra once said, “If you come to a fork in the road, take it.” Life is all about choices!
