Faithful. Flexible. Encouraging. Understanding. Amazing. Inspiring.
What word best describes today’s military spouses? Can a single word sum up the emotional roller coaster that ranges from the loneliness of deployment to the joy of that first kiss at a military homecoming? Is there any way to describe the enduring encouragement required on the home front so that our soldiers, Marines, sailors and airmen can carry out their orders without personal distractions?
No. There isn’t a word that captures the military spouse experience. But there are hundreds of photos that come pretty darn close.
May is National Military Appreciation Month and Friday, May 8 is Military Spouse Appreciation Day. This day recognizes the contributions of military spouses.
This month, MilitaryShoppers wants to showcase military spouses through its monthly photo contest. Added bonus:
This month’s photo contest winner will win $150!
The photo could be from a military life highlight. Or a military event. Or it could be a simple photo inside your home right before a PCS. The choice is up to you.
In order to be eligible for this contest, entrants must submit a photo that showcases military spouses through this link and new registrants must check “yes, I would like to receive emails of offers, savings and contests for the military community.”
