    MMSRS 64 - PCS Season Tip and Tricks for the Male MilSpouse

    in Military

    As Permanent Change of Station orders loom on the horizon, you have to start thinking about what to take and what to leave. What, as the Man-Spouse in this military family do you pick and choose? Join host Dave Etter and other callers as we give you our take on what you leave, what you store, what you take and what you sell!


    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 since July 2014. 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 most Fridays, rated R for the cussing that can occur, and available for download (podcast) immediately following each show.
