Military Appreciation Month - Marines

Military Appreciation Month: Thank You Marines

In 1999, Congress designated May as National Military Appreciation Month, and 2018 marks the nineteenth year of the national tradition of honoring members of our Armed Forces. We want to show our appreciation for the United States Marine Corps for their bravery and courage, as well as their training and ability to keep us safe and free.

Marines are the first service members to get the call when someone needs rescuing. They are the first to secure an area, and they choose to join the Marines, knowing all of this. Of all branches of the military, Marines decide to join the Corps knowing they would be joining the elite, but also knowing they would be heading straight into the most dangerous of situations.

Celebrating International Nurses Day

Patients around the globe rely on the kindness, expertise, compassion and overall excellence of the world’s nurses. Nurses know that medical needs recognize no boundaries. They know that medical needs don’t differentiate between rich and poor. And they know that medical needs don’t align themselves with political parties. That is why the International Council of Nurses (ICN) chose the theme “Health Is a Human Right” for the 2018 International Nurses Day.

Military Spouse Appreciation Day

Our Appreciation For Our Military Spouses

Military Spouses are Heroes, Too

Military Spouse Appreciation Day is held each year on the Friday before Mother’s Day. This year, it will be on May 11. We appreciate our military service members for the daily sacrifices they make to keep us safe. Equally important, we also need to show our appreciation for their spouses. Our military spouses make significant sacrifices as well. Often, raising their kids single-handedly while their spouse is away from home on deployment. Not only do they take care of their home and family by themselves, but they also deal with the stress of their loved ones being in danger and unknown situations. Take the time this Friday to show your appreciation for the sacrifices made by our military spouses.
