Military Spouses of America

Dear Friends and Colleagues:

I am pleased to announce that Military Spouses for Change (MSC) is now Military Spouses of America (MSA).

MSA seeks to be a voice for the American military spouse and her family, in a MEANINGFUL way. MSA will help our spouses understand and utilize all resources available to them, both within the Departments of Defense and VA (if applicable) and outside of them. MSA will also encourage spouses to share their insight and experiences with each other, DoD leadership, elected officials, and the American public.


Because Military Spouses of America believes (and is committed to promoting) the following facts:

1. Family readiness is vital to mission readiness.

2. The well-being of the spouse cannot be divorced from the well-being of the servicemember or veteran (and vice-versa).

3. Both the military and veteran communities benefit from well-informed and well-connected military spouses.

4. The spouses of servicemembers and veterans face unique challenges--challenges for which spouses can, and have, come up with the most effective and creative solutions (individually and collectively).

5. Servicemembers are not the only veterans in military marriages!

Military Spouses of America can be found at

Please make a note of this change and pass this on to anyone you know who may be interested in our organization. Our site also provides fairly in-depth information on PTSD and TBI (as those are issues of particular importance to our community in this time of prolonged military conflict).

Take care,

Carissa Picard, Esq.
