A new survey by Blue Star Families, a non-profit organization, has found a significant drop in the number of households who would recommend a military career.

In its comprehensive report released this month, Blue Star Families states that only 32 percent of active-duty families surveyed last year said they would endorse military service, down from 55 percent in 2016.

Challenges Faced by Military Households

The survey highlights several challenges faced by military families, which they believe make military life less appealing.

The top concern was difficulty finding employment for spouses, with nearly half of respondents citing this as a major factor.
