Previous research indicates that the most significant external source of influence upon career satisfaction and the retention decision of a military man is his wife. This study examined the attitudes and opinions of the wives of members of an Air Force missile wing. Three survey questionnaires were mailed to the wives, and participation was on a voluntary basis. While it was found that the average Air Force wife knows very little about the facilities, benefits, and services available to her, the study did reveal a fairly positive attitude towards life as a military dependent. There was evidence of a strong desire for more information about the Air Force and for more accessible information channels.
