All the Facebook Groups You Need to Know

When we first got married and I officially joined the submarine community, I was pleasantly surprised to find such a great, supportive network on Facebook. And to be honest, a relief to know I didn’t have to rely on my husband to tell me news or insights on what was going on. Girl, I’m sure you can relate. 🙂

If you didn’t already know, every duty station has a wonderful network of spouses online. These official groups are private and provide a great resource for crowd-sourcing news, sharing opinions and general information pertaining to your duty station. You can get the scoop on anything from the best school districts to the best nail salons and pediatricians. Every group is operated by administrators who outline their own rules and guidelines. These admins work tirelessly to manage requests and keep the channels a safe and positive place to communicate.

So whether you just landed at a new location or have orders for a future PCS, here’s a handy list of the current, active Facebook groups:
