Rick, your answer is incorrect, as well as insulting. While a military spouse may not serve directly, they make great sacrifices to support the servicemember. A military spouse surrenders their choice of where to live and when to move, endures the many hardships and stresses that military life and deployments put on families, tends to the physical and mental injuries of the servicemember, and they must re-start their careers each time they PCS. This is particularly difficult for spouses whose careers require state-level licensing, such as lawyers. Military spouses and children do earn the many benefits they are afforded and any suggestion otherwise is ill-informed and insensitive.
