Summary
Our military spouses embody ideals we cherish: strength, loyalty, and commitment. They are why we serve.

Military Spouse Appreciation Day was created in 1984 and traditionally falls on the Friday before Mother’s Day.

It became a national holiday in 1999 to recognize the heart and sacrifice it takes to be the backbone of the family, supporting our troops especially when a spouse is deployed.

The day is set aside to honor military spouses for the role families or service members play in keeping the armed forces strong and the country safe.
