Did you know there are currently approximately 710,000 active-duty military spouses?
One of the benefits of being a milspo is getting to join this huge community full of people who understand exactly what you’re going through. Plus through the power of social media, you can now follow, connect to and even become friends with other spouses around the world – no matter where you’re stationed.
But with such a large group, finding the best accounts to follow might seem a bit overwhelming. That’s where we come in. We recently asked our military spouse students and contacts which TikToks, Instagrams and podcasts they follow when they need inspiration, motivation, advice or a laugh – and drumroll, please – below are the results!
Read on to see if you might find your new favorite milspo account to follow:
