Military Family Appreciation Month is great time to honor and appreciate the sacrifices of our military families. Throughout the month of November, Armed Forces families serving around the world are being honored through a variety of observances and are being recognized for the commitment and contributions they make every day.
Each day of security and freedom that we enjoy to the members of our Armed Forces and their family. Behind our brave service men and women, there are family members and loved ones who share in their sacrifice and provide unending support.
Military Family Appreciation Month Appreciating the Supports of Military Families
Just as our troops embody the courage and character that make American military the finest in the world, their family members embody the resilience and generosity that makes our communities strong. They serve with heroism in their homes and neighborhoods while they are without the comfort of having loved ones nearby.
Military Family Appreciation Month Honoring the Sacrifices of Military Families
Across America, military families inspire us all with their courage, strength, and deep devotion to our country. They endure the challenges of multiple deployments and moves; spend holidays and life milestones apart; juggle everyday task while a spouse, parent, son, or daughter is in harm’s way and honor the serve of their loved ones and memory of those lost.
For many military families, birthday, wedding anniversary, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Thanksgiving and Christmas – wonderful time of a year can be stressful, especially when a loved one is away. Dealing with deployment can be difficult during the holidays. When everyone else seems to be talking about giving thanks and counting blessings, many military family members end up feeling lonely, angry and sad.
Military families are proud of their loved one for serving the country; they also deal with unique financial and emotional challenges. Often, the pressure to have the “perfect” holiday can aggravate anxiety and cause stress.
