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.” (

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.
