Ripple Effects of Deployment

Pioneer Services’ Spouse Survey Featured in Virginian-Pilot

As a way to celebrate National Military Appreciation Month, Pioneer Services, the military division of MidCountry Bank, partnered with Military Spouse Magazine to conduct a survey of spouses and their concerns. The survey and accompanying infographic generated a great deal of attention, including an article in The Virginian-Pilot called “The Ripple Effect of Deployment.”

The 2016 Military Spouse Survey of approximately 400 spouses built upon an initial survey with the National Foundation for Credit Counseling (NFCC) and Harris polling two years ago. It was expanded upon last year by Pioneer Services, with this year’s survey comparing the perceptions of Military Spouse Magazine readers with prior survey results.

The article ran in the Sunday edition of Virginia’s largest newspaper, which is based in the Hampton Roads area, and was penned by Pioneer Services’ National Military Relations Manager Allen Usry.
