For whatever reason, you and your spouse have delayed having children or won’t ever have any. As far as the military goes, are you still a family? Do you often feel left out of military family oriented activities? Do the little jokes and comments about ‘when are you going to have a baby’ sting?

Today, I’m being joined by Jennifer Brantley, who you may remember from Episode 44 and the great discussion we had: “Where Do We Go From Here? A Military Spouse Discussion on Racism and Resources.”

One topic I've been asked to cover several times is from military couples without children who wonder if there is a place for them and who often feel left out of unit or base activities. So today we’re talking about it--how leadership and those planning base activities can better reach out to childless military couples, how friends can help--or hurt--and how we can all be a little more sensitive and inclusive to everyone.

Whether or not this is your situation, I think this discussion will help you better relate to other military families!
