Veterans and members of the military seeking jobs as they transition to civilian life can connect with potential employers at a job fair Thursday at Amalie Arena in Tampa.

Fair organizers are also welcoming military spouses, who often struggle to find steady work.


A new study suggests military spouses vote much less than servicemembers, and they may not be getting the help they need to cast their votes.

When military families move, the careers of service members' spouses may grind to a halt because they lack a professional license in their new state.

Military families move a lot, and that makes it hard for service members’ spouses to hold steady jobs. About half of military spouses are either unemployed or underemployed – and that can take a toll on their families, their earning power, and the economy.
