Welcome to May Army Wives!
The month of May is special to most of us because not only does May include Mother’s Day and Armed Forces Day it has a day to celebrate Military Spouse’s specifically. Whoo-hoo!!
We recently conducted a survey of nearly 2,000 military spouses on our AWN Facebook page that revealed some interesting findings when it comes to celebrating and appreciating the military spouse. Participants were asked to vote on (or add) their favorite item that would be included in a “military spouse appreciation package”.
As expected, many voted for the package to include their husband. And even though I know that there are hundreds of USPS Flat Rate boxes out there, I’m pretty sure that’s not possible. What wasn’t expected was the level of practicality of the choices the spouses included. An overwhelming number of spouses chose a day at the spa. Other ideas followed; help with house cleaning, childcare, dinner, help with their automobiles, and of course lawn care.
We’ve put some very creative care package ideas together just for you, military spouse. So be sure to check them out and pass them on (hint-hint).
We have a wonderful line up of guests and information ready for you on our radio show this month.
