National Military Spouse Appreciation Day

A little history behind this day:

May 23, 1984, was declared the first Military Spouse Appreciation Day. President Ronald Reagan recognized the profound importance of spouse commitment to the readiness and well-being of military members. Caspar Weinberger, US Secretary of Defense, standardized the date by declaring the Friday preceding Mother’s Day as Military Spouse Day. Each year, the United States President regularly commemorates this day with a formal speech and proclamation.

So, thanks to all our military spouses who, more than anyone, know the sacrifices our military men and women make for us. Their taks is not an easy one.
