Can I make a spousal contribution to a traditional IRA for my 54 y.o retired military spouse?

Yes, there is no prohibition on contributing to a spousal IRA for your spouse just because they are already retired.  You must meet the requirements for being able to contribute to a IRA at all, including age, income and whether you are covered by a retirement plan at work.  TurboTax will ask all the questions to determine your eligibility. 

Please see our TurboTax blog article Am I eligible to make an IRA contribution? for more information.
