Today is Military Spouse Appreciation Day! Military Spouse Day was first celebrated in 1984 when President Ronald Reagan proclaimed the observance to honor the contributions of military spouses. Military Spouse Day is now every year on the Friday before Mother's Day. It is a special day to recognize, show appreciation, and to pay tribute to the spouses who play a vital role in the nation's defense.

All of us here at AAFMAA are sending a special thank you to all of the military spouses out there (and some working here at AAFMAA too)! We surely do appreciate the support you provide so our troops can do their important work.
We would love for you to share your stories with us. Also, to the troops, let us know how you appreciate what your spouse does for you and your family!
