This post is specifically for my milspouse followers - I'm wondering how many of you have taken the 'LINKS' online course on Marine Net Online, or a similar class for spouses?

If you took this course, or one like it, what did you think of it?

You can comment back here, or reply privately to my email,

I have not taken LINKS because well...I'm a dork and researched everything regarding military and military life myself and so I felt like LINKS would be a repeat of things I already knew. I asked my husband if I should take it and he said I was already more knowledgeable than him...but I might do it anyways just to see.

Hi! I'm a new follower of yours!
I took a LINKS class at our current base, but it wasn't online. I did enjoy it, if anything it reminded me of some of the resources that are available. I thought I already knew everything I needed to, but I did end up learning some new things. It might be better for spouses newer to the lifestyle, but I think it was worth it and it didn't take alot of time.

I wish I had known about LINKS years ago, when I first got married.....
I am going through the online course now and am just getting frustrated to see all this information in one place, when so much of it I have had to either find out the hard way, or have tried to find out and COULDN'T. This would have really helped me get through the first deployment.
I do recommend it for new spouses, but when possible I think the in-person class would be better.
I think as a FRG volunteer I will be looking into ways to offer this course in-person for new spouses in hubby's unit.
