Have you ever thought about war or combat? It seems foreign to those who have not experienced it. But what if you had to experience it, while being so far removed that you were completely helpless. The military spouse is often overlooked and under appreciated. But, it is the military spouse that enables their service member to go off and defend our nation.
The role of the military spouse is an incredibly challenging and difficult one to imagine, let alone live. They stay home and take care of EVERYTHING, from the kids to the bills, dealing with both sets of parents and everything else that goes wrong. The military spouse does this all by themselves all while never complaining and doing their best to continue to support their service-member. From sending care packages to maintaining their children’s and parents expectations. The military spouse never gets a break, nothing is easy for them. They do not receive the respect and admiration they deserve.
Veterans wouldn’t be Veterans if it wasn’t for their strong and independent spouses. The military spouse deals with everything themselves.
Thank a Veteran, hug their spouse. The spouse enables the warrior to fight. Without the support of the spouse, the warrior would never exist.
