The retention of qualified Service members is an ongoing concern of the U.S. military. To sustain current operations and prepare for future operations, the U.S. military must continually recruit, train, and retain quality military personnel. Previous research has indicated spousal support for a Service member's career is strongly related to the Service member's retention intentions and, in some studies, actual retention behavior. This survey note presents results on analyses examining the relationship between spousal support for the Service member to stay on active duty and the Service member's actual retention behavior.
