Chairman Issues Military Spouse Appreciation Day Message

Office of the Secretary of Defense Public Affairs
2009-05-05

Navy Adm. Mike Mullen, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff



WASHINGTON -05.05.2009

Navy Adm. Mike Mullen, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, has issued a message to service members and their families around the world, commemorating May 8 as Military Spouse Appreciation Day.

Here is the chairman's message:

"Each May, our nation pauses to pay tribute to our past, present and future military spouses. Nothing could be more right, or more honorable, than this. Without our families, those of us in uniform cannot serve. And truly, our spouses serve just as much as we do.

"Despite the strain of nearly eight years of war and numerous critical engagements around the globe, America's military is stronger and more capable than ever. From personal experience, I know that much of that strength comes from our spouses. They are vital to our success. And they make the journey of service truly one we choose together so much richer, rewarding, and satisfying.

"Military spouses bear great burdens, but they also know the tremendous difference they are making. That resilience is due not just to the rewards of service which are great but also by means of a critical network of support, one that many spouses themselves create.

"Deborah and I have seen and experienced this network ourselves and believe us it makes a big difference.

"On behalf of the Joint Chiefs and their families, we are proud to honor this occasion on the eighth of May. The unending service and sacrifice of our military spouses are worthy of both praise and an equally continuous commitment from a grateful nation."

Sincerely,

M.G. MULLEN

Admiral, U.S. Navy
