This is a day set aside to show appreciation to all the Women and Men who stand behind their spouses that serve or have served in the Armed Forces! Being a spouse of an Airman I know how hard it can be. In 1984, then President Ronald Reagan proclaimed the Friday before Mother’s Day to be designated as Military Spouse Appreciation Day! I am fortunate to have my Husband here with me, but there are many out there who's spouses are deployed. Let us all just take a day to thank all the men and women who are the unsung heroes of the Armed Forces.
