When soldiers are overseas, they sometimes get very lonely and miss home! Deployments can last months or even years. It’s the most thoughtful gesture for people in the homeland to send packages or mail to soldiers - especially single soldiers. When they receive mail, it helps them to remember people are thinking of them and their fight across the ocean is worth protecting our freedom. Upon research I found several organizations that make it easy for you to send mail or packages.

Military soldiers are highly recognized and celebrated for their sacrifices for our country. And rightfully so! They are on call 24 hours a day and have tremendous physical and mental demands placed on them. However, a lot of times the soldier’s spouse is overlooked for their strenuous work at home, and the many skills sets they possess when it comes to being hired. Hiring managers should be aware of the different talents and insights that a military spouse has learned over the years.

When it’s time to job search you may create many accounts with different companies, giving them your information and allowing yourself and your information to be more easily viewed by people searching for you. For example, on LinkedIn and Indeed you keep your profile open for people to look you up for possible new job opportunities. While these websites and job search functions were created with the best of intentions, you should remember that not everyone who has access to your information may not have your best interests at heart.
