I noticed that on some job applications there is new category "Military Spouse". I am one but a former one (divorced). According to USAA (a financial company servicing current and former military families of the U.S. Army), once a spouse, always a spouse. I still get some benefits for my car insurance as a former spouse, but would an employer think of me as a Military Spouse? I feel that I "earned" that badge while waiting for my ex to return from the Middle East. We divorced 4-5 years after his return.
