Military Spouse Appreciation Days honor the contributions, support and sacrifices made by the spouses of active-duty military and veterans. America’s military spouses are the backbone of the families who support our troops during mission, deployment, reintegration and reset. The commitment and support spouses provide help keep our country strong and safe.
“Any extra support or recognition that those serving show their spouses can go a long way toward making them feel strong and understood.,” said Navy veteran and Chairwoman of the Texas Veterans Commission, Laura Koerner. “As an active-duty Naval officer, and later as a military spouse, I can appreciate how essential that support at home can be. My ability to take care of matters at home gave my husband the freedom to concentrate on his military mission.”
Veterans and active duty are invited to celebrate their spouses by sharing a photo on a special Texas Veterans Commission Facebook page post from May 6-8. Visit https://www.facebook.com/texasveteranscommission/
In the meantime, resources and benefits for military spouses, families and active-duty military members in Texas may be found at https://www.tvc.texas.gov/active_duty/
