The Many Ways To #ThankAMilitaryMom
May 11 is Military Spouse Appreciation Day, and First Lady Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill Biden are asking all Americans to take the time to thank women across the country for their service and support on that day, or on May 13, which is Mother’s Day. It just takes a minute to #ThankAMilitaryMom – and your words and actions mean something. As Dr. Biden has said, “As a military mom, I know how a simple act of kindness can make a difference to a soldier. It is our sacred duty to honor the service of those who sacrifice for our country – and we can all play a role with a simple act of service.”
