In addition to Teacher Appreciation Week, National Nurses Week and Mother’s Day on Sunday, Military Spouse Appreciation Day is Friday, May 12.
The entire month of May is Military Appreciation Month but on Military Spouse Appreciation Day, we recognize and thank the military spouses who “serve and sacrifice alongside their service members and keep our military strong.”
