Military spouses make fantastic friends.

From duty station to duty station, over and over again, military spouses make lifelong friendships. These friendships create the tribes that help sustain military spouses through long deployments and separations from their service members and extended families. But just as quickly as they make friends, they must say “see you later,” and start over when they move. Still, this tribe is one of the best parts of military life.
