Few figures are more reviled in the military than “Jody,” the man or woman who’s making moves on your significant other. But perhaps the only thing worse than finding out Jody is your neighbor is the revelation that he’s your commanding officer — and a two-star general, to boot.
Military marriage is hard. Each year, anywhere from 2% to 7% of military couples file for divorce and even those that don’t aren’t always happy. Sometimes spouses at home cheat, and sometimes service members cheat on deployment. While it's easy to dismiss cheating as a thing only terrible people do, the underlying causes of infidelity, in many circumstances, are much more complex and heartbreaking than they appear.
Meet Jody. Jody decided to shirk his patriotic duty and stay home while you chose to serve your country. Jody is lying in wait, plotting to steal your girl when you’re away. It’s easy: Jody will swoop in, console her when she’s lonely, then slowly fill your boots simply because he’s there and you’re not. He’s the original “Mr. Steal Your Girl,” and he is every soldier’s worst nightmare
Do you ever wax poetic about slogging up a hill at 5 A.M., sweaty and exhausted, but held together by the camaraderie that comes with chanting cadences during a unit run? Well, thanks to Spotify, you can now listen to military cadences anytime you work out. Recorded straight from drill sergeants or drill instructors themselves, these playlists are guaranteed to get you amped. The popular music streaming app has cadences from all the services branches, even some that specific to infantry, rangers, or SEALs.
