National Military Spouse Appreciation Day

National Military Spouse Appreciation Day

Do you want to let your military spouse know that they are loved and appreciated? National Military Spouse Day is a great opportunity to reach out, show respect, and send a gift or card to these brave, dedicated individuals.

Everybody recognizes the honorable work that military personnel do every day. We often see on the news the heroic sacrifices that soldiers make to defend their country from the attacks of innocent civilians.

These stories are inspiring and move us. Our minds struggle to understand the immense courage, determination, and heroism they displayed that allowed them to give their lives for the safety of civilians.

It seems we forget to mention one of the most important aspects for these soldiers and often the only thing that keeps their spirits up in spite of all the hardships–their spouses.

Foreign war spouses often spend many years praying for and supporting their husbands and wives.

These spouses are also forced to find a way for their lives to continue after their husbands or wives die in these wars. They have only the memories.

Even if a spouse is able to return home safely, there are still hardships. Up to 30% of veterans who served in the military may experience PTSD for years. Symptoms can include nightmares, emotional detachment, alcoholism, or drug abuse.

No matter what your opinion on foreign policy may be, it is clear that spouses of military personnel have made sacrifices. This sacrifice should be remembered and appreciated.

It was created in 1984 during the height of Cold War. It was established by President Ronald Reagan to bring awareness to the importance of spousal support in helping military personnel through difficult times. He also wanted to celebrate the love that these wives and husbands share for one another, which makes it possible.

Every US President has since celebrated the holiday every year. He has also encouraged the global population to do the same. This recognizes not only the risk military personnel face every day, but also the support families that make their struggles bearable. This holiday is observed on the Friday before Mother’s Day.

As we have already mentioned, fearing for your spouse’s life can take a toll on your psychological and emotional well being. Military spouses appreciate any support they receive. You can make a donation to any of these organizations if you so choose. Or, you could be more involved and help to assemble and distribute gift boxes for military spouses.

You can also send a thank-you note to your spouse. Although it may not seem like a big gesture, it can make a huge difference in the lives of a spouse or wife who is lonely and stressed.

It is possible to get to know your military partner better by getting to know them personally. A subscription to a home delivery service could help less-skilled cooks have a backup plan in case their past fails. Wine-lovers might find it more enjoyable to have a bottle of wine while they watch their favorite TV shows.

If your spouse is still a housekeeper, you can put your skills to use! It doesn’t matter if you’re a master gardener or are just starting to learn about plumbing, it is always appreciated when you can help with a messy garden and a leaking sink.

It is easy to forget that military spouses have a different life than most families. They often move around, and must build relationships and friendships from the very beginning. They often travel far from their families and long-lasting friends.

Instead, make the most of this day and start the difficult task of making friends! Even if you’re not the most outgoing person, National Military Spouse Day is the perfect day to call their homes and invite them for a movie, spa day, or just a cup of coffee. Military partners have the opportunity to talk with their spouses and allow them to vent their fears and anxieties for a few hours. This can be very good for their well-being!

This simple gesture can make a real difference in their lives and increase their happiness levels while they are here. This is a win-win situation. You can both enjoy the company and time out of your house with a new friend. It is a great way for military spouses to show that they are valued, respected, and understood. They don’t have to go through the tough times by themselves, there are always others who will be there to help them.

You can also do little things to make the lives of military spouses easier. It is up to you to decide how you celebrate National Military Spouse Recognition Day. The important thing is to find a way that you can show your spouse the love and respect they deserve. It is possible to learn more about your loved one and help you choose the right gift. You will be able to show your appreciation by inviting them for coffee every now and again.
