This episode’s sponsor is The Magical Order of Brave Knights. They’ve created a product to help children cope with separation anxiety, fears from moving, stress over deployments, nightmares, or trouble sleeping alone. This company is veteran and military spouse owned and gives a portion of all sales to the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation to help military families out when they need it the most. You can purchase a Brave Knights Kit for your little Prince of Princess at their website: Magical Order of Brave Knights or on Amazon. The Coupon Code for 15% off on their website is SIRWILLIAM.

Military spouses, we’ve all been there. We roll into a new duty station, the dust settles after the travels and unpacking, and we find ourselves struggling to make connections. 

One company trying to make a difference is Military Wild, an outdoor military community whose goal it is to connect military families with each other as they pursue outdoor adventures together! Today, I’m so excited to be speaking with Kailey Brown, co-founder and the current Vice President. (Some breaking news–Kailey shared with me that Military Wild has recently attained official nonprofit status! Congrats!) You can find them all over the globe, and who knows, maybe you’ll even be inspired to start a chapter!

From the Military Wild site: 

We’re here to connect military families with each other and the wild places we live through community and adventure in the outdoors. 

Not every military family, spouse, or service member has an identical story, but we all know what it’s like to feel alone, to crave relationships, and to desire connection with the landscapes we live in. 

We’re here to connect military families with each other and the wild places we live through community and adventure in the outdoors. 

Not every military family, spouse, or service member has an identical story, but we all know what it’s like to feel alone, to crave relationships, and to desire connection with the landscapes we live in. Our founders and ambassadors believe that laughter, struggles, bravery, and adventures in the outdoors bring us closer together and teach us love for the places we live. 

It doesn’t matter how many miles you’ve hiked or how heavy your pack is – adventure is out there anywhere for anyone. 

You deserve a community that supports you. You deserve adventure that makes you feel alive. You deserve friendships that last far beyond duty stations. 

So pack your backpack, grab your trail snacks, leave room for post-hike tacos, and let’s adventure together.

Kailey was a ton of fun to talk to, and her positivity and love for Military Wild and the work they’re doing is so apparent. I love the stories she shared about the difference Military Wild is making for military spouses across the world. After you listen, I bet you’ll be inspired, too. And if you feel a little unsure about the whole experience, here’s some advice from Kailey to just put yourself out there and make connections, while experiencing the outdoors:
