    • Army Protocol

      Protocol for the most part is similar within all services but can vary. As such should a specific question arise regarding the US Army we strongly urge you to check with the Protocol Officer and also reviewing the most current revision of "A Guide To Protocol And Etiquette For Official Entertainment" (Pamphlet No. 600-60 published by the Headquarters Department of the Army Washington, D.C.)

      What is Protocol?

      Precedence, according to Webster is, “priority in place, time or rank.” In the government
      and military, precedence of individuals is usually fixed by rank, but may also be
      assigned based on other criteria such as position.

      The precedence of senior officials in government agencies is not always fixed, however,
      and may change from time to time depending on several factors, the most significant
      being the current administration.

      There is only one official precedence list and that is maintained by the Chief of
      Protocol, Department of State. The Department of Defense and service precedence lists
      reflect the precedence established by the State Department. These latter two lists, however,
      are expanded to include DoD and service-specific positions.

    • Air Force Protocol

      Protocol for the most part is similar within all services but can vary. The information presented here is used typically used by the United Air Force.  The information was gleaned (and is faithfully reproduced) a manual known as 'Till Wheels are Up' that was originally produced at Luke Air Force base.  We are not aware whether it is still in publication nor if it is available for dissemintation.  Neither are aware of a specific Air Force manual, order, or directive that outlines protocol for the Air Force.

      As such should a specific question arise regarding protocol we strongly urge you to check with the Protocol Officer.

    Why not Spouse?

     

    We have been asked over and over why our sites are slanted to the women .... and why is it "wives" not "spouse".

     

    Quite honestly to answer the question about "Spouses" we should explain that the "Marine Wives Website" which was the first site created in May of 1998, was not meant to be degrading to those men left behind... It is just that the amount of men in that situation is extremely small in comparison and generally speaking they do not go looking for the support that the women do when separated.

     

    The Marine Corps Wives Website actually came about accidentally and is the off shoot of a site we started on Memorial Day in 1998. It expanded to include Marine medals. we then began including information that we felt was pertinent and before too long some Marine wives stumbled across the information. Soon afterward, we were getting visitors from around the world -- 95% of them female and all wanting to learn what their [husband] spouse did, what they had to do, etc.

     

    After they began visiting the site became oriented towards women and they began calling it the Marine Wives Website. The name stuck. About 8 months later we started receiving questions about doing sites for the wives in the other services, since they didn't want to be left out. We undertook the job and since the Marine Corps is so closely related to the Navy ? The Navy site went up second in November 1999. The name came natural - Navy Wives Website. The other service wives sites followed and they are all active and follow the same genre.

     

    Army Wives went active in March 2000.

    Coast Guard Wives went active in April 2000.

    Air Force Wives went active in May 2000.

    Military Wives went active in November 11, 2000.

    The Military Kidz Website went active in 3rd quarter 2001.

    The Military Hisbands Website went active in 4th quarter 2001.

    The Military Hisbands Website went active in 2nd quarter 2002.

     

    Although the name would imply that only wives are welcome, this is not true. The information is generic in nature and usable by both men and women.
