WASHINGTON, May 6, 2011 - President Barack Obama has declared today Military Spouse Appreciation Day.
In his proclamation issued yesterday, the president said: "Military spouses serve as steady and supportive partners to the heroes in uniform who protect and defend our great Nation every day. Across America and around the world, military spouses serve our country in their own special way, helping families and friends through the stress of a deployment, caring for our wounded warriors, and supporting each other when a loved one has made the ultimate sacrifice.
