May is a special month for both those in and out of the military. For service members and veterans, it's a chance to pay tribute to supportive families and spouses on Military Spouse Appreciation Day, and honor the memory of those who have sacrificed for this nation on Memorial Day. For the general public, the entire month provides an opportunity to say thanks to all those, past and present, who have contributed to the U.S. military.

What is Military Appreciation Month?

Congress designated May as National Military Appreciation Month in 1999 to ensure the nation was given the opportunity to publicly demonstrate their appreciation for the sacrifices and successes made by our service members -- past and present. Each year the president makes a proclamation, reminding Americans of the important role the U.S. Armed Forces have played in the history and development of our country. May was selected because it has the most days set aside for celebrating and commemorating our military's achievements. In addition to the special days already mentioned, important dates for the military in May include Loyalty Day, which was established in 1921, Victory in Europe (VE) Day commemorating the end of WWII in Europe in 1945 and Armed Forces Day.

Military Appreciation Day

Many locations also celebrate a specific Military Appreciation Day. Although not a nationally recognized holiday, areas use the day to hold parties and picnics in honor of their local active duty, Guard, Reserve and military veteran communities. Local businesses may offer discounts, while local sports teams may give free entrance to military families and veterans.

We honor you

Join Military.com this month in honoring, remembering, recognizing and appreciating those who have served and those now serving -- read special features, and learn the history behind Military Appreciation Month. If you're a service member, military family member and veteran, you can find out about major events taking place throughout the month, as well as important discounts being offered by companies in thanks for your military

Good afternnon SSFA Families and friends,

Last night I attended the NRO All Military Spouses event hosted by General Denker.

Amazing resources were presented. I will have the slides from the briefing, hopefully by the end of the week and I will send them to each person I have on my Ombudsman e-mail distribution list. If you are not on that distribution list please have your Active Duty Spouse e-mail me from his unclassified DoD e-mail account with your information and I will place you on the list. I do not want anyone to miss out on information or feel that you do not have the support you need.

Please reach out if you have any questions.
