In this Wednesday, May 9, 2012 photo, Connie Crisler, a military spouse, goes through the growing pile of bills she is struggling to pay at her Augusta, Ga. home. A job that was offered to her was recently rescinded and she is struggling to find steady work. Crisler has a sterling resume and glowing references from past employers who call her an “innovative self-starter, who rarely requires supervision.” But she still counts herself among the roughly one-fourth of military spouses looking for work, in part because she has held six jobs in the six years she’s been married. It’s an age-old conundrum for military families uprooted every couple of years by new orders. And job searches in a country emerging from a recession are doubly difficult.
