Marketing and Advertising to the Military: One of the Most Attractive Consumer Segments in the U.S.

The Military Market is young and active - in fact, over 43% are between 17-24 years of age. Advertising to the Military is also one of the best ways to engage hard to reach young men - who are very family-oriented (55% are married and 44% have kids). Active military personnel are also 100% employed, with over $19 billion in total spending power. During service and after discharge, they remain very brand loyal to those who supported them.
