Support Military Spouses recognizes and applauds the undaunted courage of military wives and husbands as they shoulder the responsibility of family, employment, finances, wounded warrior care, and the honoring of fallen heroes.
Military Spouse Appreciation 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
Support Military Spouses uses Military Spouse Appreciation Day to honor military spouses by giving Shoebox Gifts, now known as Military Spouse Care Packages. Now, thousands of spouses are receiving Care Packages from Support Military Spouses.
It is with tremendous appreciation that Support Military Spouses recognizes and honors military spouses throughout the year, but especially on Military Spouse Appreciation Day.
