Military couples may be apprehensive about the possibility of being separated from their spouses during their next assignments. However, the Air Force Personnel Center has an accommodation rate of more than 96 percent for mil-to-mil married couples through the assignment of military couples option, commonly known across the Air Force as a 'join spouse' assignment. A join spouse assignment allows legally married active-duty military couples the opportunity to be stationed together at the same installation. Or, they may be assigned to different installations within 50 miles of each other and maintain a joint residence. For more information, visit myPers. Select 'Any' from the dropdown menu and search 'join spouse.'
