Last year I helped to design, implement and analyze a survey for military families. The intent was to gain insight into a broad spectrum of military family lifestyle issues. With the help of a variety of military family support organizations, we were able to garner more than 3,600 respondents, representing every branch and rank, who gave their input based on their “in the trenches” experiences while answering questions about their relationships, stress, operations tempo requirements, employment, children’s education and reactions to deployments, civic engagement and use of social media.
