Military Spouse Appreciation Day, May 11, 2012

Each year the Friday before Mother's Day is Military Spouse Appreciation Day; May 11, 2012. "The first Military Spouse Day was first celebrated in 1984 when then-President Ronald Reagan proclaimed the observance to honor the contributions of military spouses. The military now sets aside the Friday before Mother's Day each year to pay tribute to the spouses who play a vital role in the nation's defense." (http://www.army.mil/spouse/

This is a day to love, appreciate and tell the US military-spouses in our lives and around the world a special 'Thank You' for all you have done.





Military Spouses are flexible ...



They are resilient ...


They are strong ...
(or behind their sailor, airman, marine or coastie)



But most of all they are human and they too need to be recognized for the sacrifices they make to love and cherish their sailor, soldier, marine, airman, or coastie.

How can you recognize them on their special day?
Be sure to check out 101 Ways to Thank a Military Spouse.  Another resource is our Spouse Appreciation Board on Pinterest, images, thoughts and events around the country just for our HH6s.  Lastly, if you are a spouse blogger be sure to join the Military Spouse Appreciation Day Blog Hop hosted by Household 6 Diva and Riding the Roller Coaster. (I hear there are even prizes and giveaways involved!)

  1. Great blog for military families. Check out www.healthybodyhealthylife.org it's a new non-profit organization that offers free fitness classes, online workouts, a fitness/nutrition blog, and healthy recipes to military spouses!
