Scuttlebutt Ep 89: Modern Day Marine Day 2 – Comedian and Military Spouse Advocate, Ashley Gutermuth

Hey, Scuttlebutt listeners. This week we are recording from the floor of Modern Day Marine so that we can bring you the events and personnel of this outstanding convention as it’s going on. Yesterday we had such a fun time with stand-up comedian, advocate and 2023 Air Force Spouse of the Year, Ashley Gutermuth. Ashley was at MDM hosting a panel speaking directly to military spouse employment and issues that effect service members and their families. Laughter is oftentimes the best medicine and it can help raise awareness of important issues. Ashley talks to us about how she sees comedy as a platform for advocacy and that the issues she’s addressing directly effects readiness and retention. Not to mention that advocating for spouses and families is just the right thing to do. This was a great interview and, as expected from an award-winning comedian, we had a lot of laughs.

If you’re at Modern Day Marine, please come see us. We’re over by OBJ 1 (the wargaming center), Aisle 2600 and we would love to thank you face-to-face for supporting our show.
