May 6, 2011: Military Spouse Appreciation Day



Military Spouse Appreciation Day is the Friday before Mother's Day, May 6th, 2011.  It is a day to recognize the contributions of the Military Spouse to our US Military.

 "At the heart of our Armed Forces, servicemembers' spouses keep our military families on track.  They balance family life, military life, and their careers, all while supporting other military families and giving back to their communities.  Many have served in uniform themselves and, understanding the obligations involved, can provide unparalleled support.  They are pillars of strength in their families, often celebrating their children's life milestones while the other parent is away."
- Barack Obama

I was featured in the "Spotlight on the Military Spouse" on MilitaryAvenue.com, a service supporting the military relocation, travel, and lifestyle needs of the American military family. The community is comprised of millions of military active duty, retirees, veterans, DoD civilians and contractors, as well as military spouses and children.

I am honored to be a part of such an important national event.
