military spouses make the mission possibleEleven years.

That’s how long we’ve been publicly recognizing military spouses via Twitter. Milspouses often endure months apart from their loved ones, uprooted lives, and the general uncertainty that comes with being the spouse of a military member.

National Military Spouse Appreciation Day was first proclaimed by President Ronald Reagan in 1984, and is observed the Friday prior to Mother’s Day. This year military spouses will be honored Friday, May 12.


ClearedJobs.Net’s military spouse appreciation program is an exclusive Twitter-specific initiative using the Twitter handle @MilSpouseDay. Military spouses from all branches of the U.S. Armed Forces are honored, and you can follow this year’s initiative on Twitter Monday, May 1 through Friday, May 12.
