How do military spouses make friends?


I want to know how you go about making friends!

We all move around rather frequently and many of us deal with numerous deployments and/or separations and sometimes this can lead to feeling pretty darn lonely. 

I get numerous emails from newly married spouses asking how to make friends each time they move and how to 'fit into' the military community.  What would your suggestions be and what works for you?

Do you go out and meet the neighbors or wait for them to 'welcome' you?

Do you make friends via your spouse's unit or family group?

Do you make friends at work or in volunteer settings?

Do you count on the friends and/or family you left behind to get you through?

Do you rely on the internet when making friends?

The list could go on and on.....so how do you make friends?
