Despite its many changes throughout the history of the Army, the coffee group has become a widely used term to mean a social group consisting of the spouses of a unit.
Though some things remain the same, a lot has changed in the Army. Our protocol team (Ginger, Michelle, Lynda, and Ann) edited, added, and updated life lessons from “Everything I Ever Wanted to Know About the Army I Learned at a Coffee” by an unknown author. We present them to you in three easy categories: military protocol, social life, and sage advice.
Sometimes a few tips and advice from seasoned spouses are just the ticket you need to navigate your military adventure. Maybe you’ll add your own pearls of wisdom as you go!
For those of you who might not be familiar with the Association of the United States Army (AUSA), it is a private, non-profit organization that serves as an advocacy group for the Army. It began in 1950 and has chapters worldwide. Soldiers and families, as well as community partners, and beyond, can be members. AUSA holds annual meetings in DC, and this year we were lucky to have one of our AWN protocol bloggers, Ginger Perkins, invited to speak. She graciously shared the following executive summary (EXSUM)!
