Our Branch Mentor & Advocates

MSAN Mentors and Branch Mentors and provide peer-to-peer mentorship, support, empowerment and education to all new military spouses; Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Marine, National Guard, Navy and Reserves.

New military spouses from all military branches have an assigned MSAN Mentor by their side from the moment they become new military spouses through their first Permanent Change of Station (PCS) journey until their arrival to their new installation. Our Mentors link spouses to Family Readiness Centers, Key Spouses, Ombudsmen, Family Readiness Groups (FRGs), MSAN installation mentors, and other supportive agencies at their new military installation. Our mentors have the support and leadership of amazing and experienced military spouses that serve as Branch Mentors.

MSAN’s bloggers & Advocates are dedicated to inform and improve the lives of military families through education.  They share their experience, skills and knowledge on their weekly blogs, discussion questions, live Facebook events and webinars. Advocates are trained to guide, assist, support, and find solutions to your needs!
