Help Us Celebrate Military Spouse Appreciation Day 2020

Posted by Ashley Jones
Military Spouse Appreciation Day

It’s that meaningful time of year again when we invite you to help us publicly recognize military spouses for their sacrifice and dedication to their military husbands and wives on active duty. In 2009, ClearedJobs.Net launched an effort to honor spouses from all branches of the U.S. Armed Forces using the Twitter handle @MilSpouseDay and we continue to hold this initiative in high regard as a small token of how much we value what these families do for our country.

National Military Spouse Appreciation Day was first proclaimed by President Ronald Reagan in 1984 to honor these military wives, husbands and partners for their countless personal sacrifices. This year military spouses will be honored May 8, the Friday prior to Mother’s Day.

Our goal is to recognize military spouses who often endure months apart from their loved ones, uprooted lives, and the general uncertainty that comes with being the spouse of a military member. Join us in recognizing and applauding this special group of men and women.

Do You Know a Military Spouse We Should Honor

Please help us honor these folks who serve our country. If you know a military spouse with a Twitter account that should be recognized, please send a tweet to @milspousedayYou can follow our initiative this year through May 8 via your Twitter account.
