Poppin’ Smoke Military Travel Site with Stephanie Montague

Stephanie Montague; Veteran On the Move

This week Joe is joined by Stephanie Montague, founder and editor-in-chief of the travel website Poppin’ Smoke. Looking for something different after her husband’s retirement from the Army, they decided to take a year to travel the world. Five years later, they are continuing their international adventure. Stephanie founded Poppin’ Smoke to share an overview of DoD travel benefits and best practices, Space-A tips, and how to use Tricare wherever your travels take you. Stephanie and Joe discuss the advantages of expat life, taking time to slow travel, the adventures and challenges that come with international travel.
