Oh there are so many reasons that I don't know where to begin...
Just as our husbands are special for answering the call to serve our country, we are special for committing our lives to someone in the military. We also cope to the constant changes that the military can throw at us on top of the everyday life changes. We are also special because we remain faithful through long, difficult separation. It is often said that wife is the hardest job in the military and I agree simply because it is never our only job. We have our own job and/or family to care for. But we also get to share in the pride of knowing that we are doing a wonderful thing for our country. Our soldiers need us. We help them do their job to the best of their ability and we help ensure that they come home safe by taking care of the responsibilities at home.
So hold your head up high ladies, even through the tears, and know that you are an important part of the United States Armed Forces! Happy Military Spouse Appreciation Day!!
