Military Spouse Appreciation Day 2015National 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 this Friday, May 8.

ClearedJobs.Net launched an effort to publicly recognize military spouses via Twitter in 2009. 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.

Twitter ResponsesClearedJobs.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 via @milspouseday, Monday, May 4 through Friday, May 8, 2015.
