Friday, May 8th is Military Spouse Appreciation Day


The Friday in May before Mother's Day, is Military Spouse Appreciation Day.

This very important day was first recognized by President Ronald Reagan in 1984. The sitting president typically issues a proclamation in recognition of the holiday, while celebrations are held on and near U.S. military bases around the world.

May is also host to a series of other military holidays, including Military Appreciation Month, established in 1999;

Victory in Europe (VE) Day, commemorating the end of WWII in Europe on May 8, 1945; and Armed Forces Day, designated in 1949.

Memorial Day, the only official federal holiday in May, is always celebrated the last Monday of the month.

Military Spouse Appreciation Day is a day set aside....to pause and to recognize the military spouses around us

who have the greatest impact on those serving, as well as lives of those in our military communities.
