Whether it is the pay you are unhappy with or your spouse employment issues, this is the time for you to raise your opinions through the military family survey organized by the nonprofit Blue Star Families. The survey is for all active-duty service members, veterans and their families. This is the seventh annual Military Family Lifestyle Survey focusing on the issues being faced by military personnel, veterans and their families.
Note that the survey will start from May 30 and will hardly take about 30 minutes. Topics covered by the survey include deployment challenges, education, wellness, employment, military child education, public policy issues, financial challenges and the like. In addition, people who participate in the survey can win one of the five $100 Visa gift cards.
It is the third consecutive year for Blue Star Families to work with the Institute for Veterans and Military Families at Syracuse University to conduct the survey. Note that the latter is focused more on economic, education, social and policy issues affecting veterans and military families. Back in 2015, almost 6,300 people took the survey.
According to the Senior Advisor for Policy and Survey at Blue Star Families, Cristin Orr Shiffer, ?The Blue Star Families’ annual Military Family Lifestyle Survey provides those serving with the rare, but crucially important, opportunity to share what?s really going on inside military families.?
Previously, the surveys were more focused on military pay and changes in the retirement plans, military spouse employment, veteran and service member suicide and veteran employment.
