Today is National Military Spouse Appreciation Day. Did you know the average military family loses $180,000 of potential income over the course of a 20-year military career? We believe creating a professional environment in which highly qualified, professional communicators — who also happen to be military spouses — can thrive is the best way to say, “Thank you for your family’s service.”
We’ve proudly employed more than a dozen military spouses representing Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, and even the Space Force families. Learn why we’re committed to making a difference.Read On
