I believe every spouse should have a POA when your soldier is gone. Some may disagree but in the video below I will explain what exactly a POA is and why you should have one:

  1. Thanks for posting this! I agree that it is so important to have POA! My husband is getting ready for his first deployment and we are definitely going to get POA and have him do a will. Just in case. I would rather be more than prepared than to not be prepared at all.

  2. I agree that they’re important. I’ve found a lot of soldiers just don’t think they’re necessary unless they’re going to be away for a long period of time. I don’t think it’s a trust issue so much as some sort of Army culture thing that they’ve been taught.

  3. I loved this video! It is so important to have a POA, even if it’s “just in case.” My husband is new to the Army, but I made sure to get one created before he left for Basic. It’s a good thing I did, too! Even though it’s only a minor thing, we forgot to put my name on our cell phone account and I needed to change something on it while he was gone. Even though it involved a little run-around as a result of the cell company representative not understanding what a POA was, I was able to make the changes I needed to make with my POA. :)

  4. Just an FYI, DFAS needs a specific POA in order to discuss ANYTHING with you. They will not accept a general POA.
