See someone in uniform, "Thank you for your service," we say. But, lets not forget to notice if there's a family member standing next to them.

Sleepless nights wondering if they're okay, half a world away. All the responsibility of home now rest on the shoulders of just one parent/spouse.

National Military Spouse Appreciation Day is celebrated on the Friday before Mother’s Day in May. This year it is, May 11th, 2018.

Lets say thanks and honor the contributions and sacrifices made by military spouses. They are the ones that our service men and women think of while they are on deployment.  They serve our country just like their loved ones.

In celebration of Military Spouse Appreciation Day, the armed forces have special events and programs to inform, honor, and recognize military spouses around the world.

You can say thanks online with #MilitarySpouseDay.

To all those who here in Wyoming who patiently wait at home, doing what they can to keep the family going, thank you for your service.
