Written By: Christina Etchberger, Creator of It’s a Military Life
It’s a Military Life has come a long way – from an idea to a social media platform. What do I mean by platform? IML is a platform that helps give military significant others, families, and veterans a voice. Our mission is to celebrate YOU and your story and successes.
We are a milso and vet networking community, and our vision is for everyone involved to get inspired and be the inspiration as well. The creation of It’s a Military Life would not have been possible without the support of all the wonderfully influential people in the military community.
It was so exciting to take part in Fort Sill’s Patriot Spouses Club Super Sign Up! This is where I had the opportunity to represent It’s a Military Life as a vendor and member of the spouse club. IML’s purpose was simply to make connections and share about our lifestyle blog and community. We were also so fortunate to be able to share information about some of our favorite military spouse platforms and small businesses. These amazing women so graciously donated their products as giveaways for the event.
How can you participate in the giveaway? Simply, subscribe!

Thank you again to all our wonderful military spouse platforms and small businesses for their donations!

SpouseLink.org at SpouseLink.AAFMAA.com
SpouseLink.org was created by AAFMAA, a non-profit, membership association that supports the American Armed Forces community with affordable insurance and survivor assistance services. Military Families call AAFMAA when they need help, from how to navigate confusing benefits to next steps after losing a loved one. They’re always looking for new ways to support the Military community, and after several AAFMAA members’ spouses suggested a website just for #MilSpouses, AAFMAA created SpouseLink.AAFMAA.com.
SpouseLink supports, informs and inspires Military Spouses with personal stories and news — everything from pop culture to important Military information. We have ambassadors located at bases all over the United States! Each Ambassador strives to bring the local military spouse community together through helpful resources as well as fun, free events.
Thank you GiGi from @spouselinksandiego for supporting, informing, and inspiring Military Spouses around the world!
