Military Spouse Appreciation Day

When: May 7, 2021, 0700 - 1700 CDT

We LOVE our military spouses! Not all who serve wear a uniform... National Military Spouse Appreciation Day is a presidentially-approved holiday and  is celebrated on the Friday before Mother’s Day in May. This year it will be observed on Friday, May 7th, 2021. On Military Spouse Appreciation Day we honor the contributions and sacrifices made by military spouses. Their commitment and support help to keep our country safe. America’s military spouses are the backbone of the families who support our troops during mission, deployment, reintegration and reset. Military spouses are silent heroes who are essential to the strength of the nation, and they serve our country just like their loved ones.
