Can we give a shout out ~ Military Spouse Appreciation Day!

May 6th, 2011 is Military Spouse Appreciation Day. Visit to find out how you can get involved and support military families in your community.

President Obama has proclaimed May 6, 2011, Military Spouse Appreciation Day. Earlier this year, the Obama Administration released a report to bring together resources from across Government to support and engage military families. Through the Joining Forces initiative, First Lady Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill Biden are working to spark action from all sectors of society to address the unique challenges of military families. "On Military Spouse Appreciation Day, we have an opportunity to not only honor the husbands and wives of our service members, but also thank them by actively expressing our gratitude in both word and deed."

  • american flag ribbonYay!  That's true! Military wives have to be both Mom and Dad for months and years---they have to run the household,pay the bills, sell the house,arrange for the moves, take the kids to the Base Clinic when they are sick, wait in line at the Commisary, feel fear when their hubbies  fly off to a foreign country or go to a war zone, find new  friends every time there is another move to a new base.....whewwww! And there is more, but that's all i have time for today :-)

  • Here are five things you can do:

    1. Potluck at your place. Plan a potluck dinner at your house and invite military families in the neighborhood so they can have a night off from making a full dinner.

    2. Volunteer your time. Find out if your school has a Student2Student group, which helps new military students get settled in at the school. You can give tours of the school, invite new students to your lunch group or answer questions they have about life at your school.
