MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) - The U.S. job market is hot. Yet too many military spouses continue to struggle as they search for careers.

More than 21% of military spouses are unemployed, according to recent research from Hiring Our Heroes, an organization devoted to connecting the military community with meaningful career opportunities.
