National Military Spouse Appreciation Day

It’s been called the hardest job in the military- being a military spouse.  Today we say thank you to those who are married to members of the Armed Forces during Military Spouse Appreciation Day.

Military spouses are the silent heroes who support our troops during their missions and deployments.

They take care of the children and household, while their loved one is fighting for freedom all over the world.

I was a military spouse for a long time.  My husband retired from the Navy after 21 years of service. Saying goodbye before deployments was extremely hard.  Like many other military families, my husband missed the birth of children, holidays, and birthdays.

Even though my husband was on the other side of the world for many milestones, he was NEVER away from our hearts.

God Bless our Military and everyone who supports them – especially their spouses!
