An editor, freelance journalist, and military spouse, Amy Bushatz wrote “Something’s Rank” in Stories Around the Table: Laughter, Wisdom, and Strength in Military Life.
She says, “My contribution for Stories Around the Table came as I learned the power of military life to stretch me outside my comfort zone. Stepping forward and learning to be friends with people who are not like you can be the key to surviving this life of constant moves. I sincerely hope that reading my story will inspire someone else to do the same.”
Amy is the managing editor of Military.com’s spouse and family blog SpouseBuzz.com. Her work has appeared in The New York Times, The Washington Times, and Runner’s World. Amy loves fitness and getting outdoors with her family. Her hobbies include CrossFit, running with her kids in their double stroller, triathlons, tennis, camping, and lake kayaking.
With three duty stations in her first five years of military life, Amy is ready for whatever new places and new friends Army life may bring her.
