A Military Spouse:

  • Actually moves less than a traditional employee;
  • Is more likely to bring ethnic diversity to the workplace;
  • Is more educated than their average civilian counterpart -- many hold advanced degrees;
  • Stays with an employer as long or longer than a traditional employee;
  • Is part of a readily available workforce;
  • Claims responsibility for as much as 40 percent of the household income.
