Will the Real MSG Spouses Please Stand Up? (Or Blog)

IMG_1468

J dropped his package for the Marine Corps Embassy Security Guard program (commonly known as MSG duty) a few weeks ago and we’ve been twiddling our thumbs ever since. We met way back in 2009 while J was on MSG as a watch stander in Niamey, Niger, so we’re well aware of how this all works.

In anticipation of going on MSG together, I scoured the internet for blogs written by spouses of MSG Detachment Commanders and I came up with nothing. There’s an abundance of spouse blogs out there, don’t get me wrong. But apparently the life of MSG Detachment Commanders and their families is either the best kept military secret, or there’s really just nobody out there writing about it. So, if you’ve stumbled upon this blog because you’re the spouse of a soon-to-be Det Commander… I’m sorry that I’m all you’ve got, but I hope to document the process and do it some justice.

 A few posts of interest to fellow/future MSG spouses:

Update (2016): We’ve been on MSG since late 2015 and we’re currently in Tegucigalpa, Honduras.

Update (2017): We’re now at our second post in Ljubljana, Slovenia.

    1. We’re at our second post and loving it, though I might not say the same for our first post. But that’s all a part of the adventure! I’ve lived abroad in many different places before, so I didn’t find the transition particularly difficult to either country, though our postings are tame compared to some. I also don’t have any kids or pets to worry about, so that makes it easier. And yes, we did fly out together. 🙂 If you have any other questions, shoot me an email via the Contact page!
