Military spouses are the backbone of the Armed Forces. They keep the home front strong when their service member is gone for training, deploying, or attending professional schools. There are approximately 1 million military spouses of which 624,000 are active-duty spouses and 372,000 are Reserve and National Guard. Ninety-two percent of active-duty spouses are female. The Army Public Health Center supports Army spouses’ quality of life by promoting healthy behaviors and supporting healthy Army communities.
