Military Spouse Appreciation Day 2011

Posted by Kathleen Smith

@SLHoppin, one of last year’s honoreesIn 2009, ClearedJobs.Net launched an effort to publicly recognize military spouses on Military Spouse Appreciation Day, held each year the Friday before Mother’s Day. Military Spouse Appreciation Day was first proclaimed by President Ronald Reagan in 1984.

ClearedJobs.Net’s military spouse appreciation endeavor is an exclusive Twitter-specific initiative using the Twitter handle @milspouseday. The objective behind the military spouse outreach effort is to express appreciation for military spouses who often must endure months apart from their loved ones. With a very active pool of military-to-civilian employment job seekers, ClearedJobs.Net believes recognizing the many sacrifices of military spouses is a relevant, meaningful cause.

The concept centers on using Twitter to honor military spouses from all branches of the U.S. Armed Forces. This year’s @milspouseday initiative is Monday, May 2 through Military Spouse Appreciation Day Friday, May 6, 2011.

To follow ClearedJobs.Net’s military spouse appreciation effort, visit our Twitter feed. If you know a military spouse who is on twitter that you would like us to honor, plus send us a tweet to @milspouseday.
