Military families are some of the toughest families out there. Many are separated by miles, states and often time countries. Today we honor the Military Spouses, as they often are left behind while their spouses are stationed away from their families. Days, weeks, months and sometimes a year or more will pass as these families are separated.
Being a single parent isn’t easy, let alone being a Military parent as you are the constant in your children’s lives. One day at a time is how a Military Spouse manages, so while there are many fighting for our rights, our freedom there are just as many at home supporting and sacrificing their families for us as well.
Always the Friday before Mother’s Day, National Military Spouse Appreciation Day is an important day when the citizens of the United States acknowledge the significant contributions, support, and sacrifices that the spouses of the Armed Forces give along with the tremendous strength and patriotism that they have.
National Military Spouse Appreciation Day is also sometimes known as Military Spouse Day.
A little National Military Spouse Appreciation Day History, May 23, 1984 was declared the first Military Spouse Day with Proclamation 5184, dated April 17, 1984 as President Ronald Reagan recognized the importance of spouse commitment to the readiness and well-being of military members.
Thank you to all the Military Families that give and sacrifice so much…
