Military spouses, as you already know, are the backbone of the military family. Without the spousal support, how would our soldiers, airmen, sailors, and Marines continue to accomplish the mission? In honor of military spouses, we held a DoDLive Bloggers Roundtable with Meg O'Grady, director of the Military Spouse Employment Partnership (MSEP) and Dr. Cathy Flynn, program analyst with Military Community & Family Policy on Friday, Nov. 16. Dr. Flynn and Mrs. O'Grady discussed key initiatives related to military spouses employment and overall military family lifestyle.
