The military life despite its challenges is a really great lifestyle to experience. The chance to travel at no expense and meet so many people from different backgrounds is not something to be taken lightly. However whenever we sit and dream, we think about some of the things that would possibly make the military life easier to deal with.
Here are 10 dream worthy things that would be a great extension to streamline this thing we call the “military life”.
Automatic Friend Finder
The military has all these resource websites but what about a friend finder specifically for military spouses. You know one that matches up age, gender, where your stationed, how crazy you are, amount of wine and coffee you drink each week, etc. Those types of things would make the friend making process ten times easier.
Automatic Emergency Contact
I really hate when we enrolled the kids in a new school on post and they ask for an emergency contact. Dude we’re in Hawaii! I really don’t think my mom in New York can get here in less than 20 minutes.
Free Tickets Home Every Year
Wouldn’t it be great if the military gave our families at least one complimentary roundtrip ticket package home every year? I mean you’re the ones who chose to send us all the way to West Bubble Freak so why do we have to drain our savings to go home and visit immediate family.
Pay For Family To Come See Us
Yes, I think it would be awesome for the military to pay for at least one of my family members to come see me per year. Uncle Sam sent me here!
I mean since we’re in government housing and we have to keep it up to standards…couldn’t we get a housekeeper once per week as part of the military benefits package?
This Baby Situation
So since you’re shipping my husband off 10,000 miles away and he can’t be here to help me when I bring the baby home can I get some kind of nanny services?
Playroom in the Commissary
I know the commissary has been having some financial issues, but I’d be more than willing to take that tax, oops I mean surcharge and pay towards some kind of playroom with a baby sitter in it at the commissary. Do you know how much money you guys could make!!!!!
Yeah we saw that you guys are offering curbside delivery at some bases, but wouldn’t it be great to offer on base grocery delivery? I’d pay the extra fee! Notice all these fees that I’m willing to pay!!!
Oh Yea This Cellphone
So the reality is we have a cellphone plan because you guys through unwritten rules require my dude(ette) to have one. So that being said this 15% off military discount isn’t really helping. How about a flat out $100 a month stipend to go towards this unwanted high bill!
Skip A Deployment (Or a PCS)
I mean between TDY’s, Field Time, and Deployments the hubby has been gone a long time. I’d really like to have him home for this baby’s delivery, or actually celebrate that thing that happens once a year called an anniversary. Can we offer a “skip a deployment” options once your spouse has been deployed three or more times? Better yet I don’t want to leave this base…I’ll take NO PCS for $500 Alex!
What is your dream item that you wish the military would offer as part of the military benefits package?
