Description/Abstract

This study focuses on many of the positive impacts of military service on military spouses, children, and service members. In practice, service members should take steps to educate themselves about the benefits and programs available to them. Military spouses and parents who are service members should also be sure that their children are receiving any needed support and enrichment by utilizing quality education programs, sporting activities, and childcare. In policy, policymakers have implemented and appealed many policies to reduce discrimination because of one’s race, sexuality, or sex in the military, and they may need to implement programs that clearly define unacceptable behavior as well as empower service members to reduce sexual harassment among their colleagues.
