Military Spouse Appreciation Day NAVADMIN

Unselfish and noble actions are the most radiant pages in the biography of souls. 
~David Thomas

This is directly from the CNO (Chief of Naval Operations) regarding tomorrow’s Military Spouse Appreciation Day. I thought you all might enjoy the good things said about us from our CNO:

SUBJ/MILITARY SPOUSE APPRECIATION DAY//

RMKS/1.  MILITARY SPOUSE APPRECIATION DAY, WHICH WE OBSERVE THIS YEAR ON MAY 6, IS AN OCCASION TO HONOR THE MANY NAVY SPOUSES WHO SUPPORT OUR SERVICEMEN AND WOMEN IN THE WORK OF OUR NATION.  WHILE BALANCING FAMILY LIFE, MILITARY OBLIGATIONS, AND OFTEN CAREERS OF THEIR OWN, OUR HUSBANDS AND WIVES ENABLE THE GOOD OUR NAVY ACHIEVES ACROSS THE GLOBE EVERY DAY.

2.  AS WE CELEBRATE MILITARY SPOUSE APPRECIATION DAY, WE THANK OUR SPOUSES FOR THEIR LOVE AND SUPPORT THROUGH COUNTLESS

DEPLOYMENTS; FOR THEIR PATIENCE OVER MANY HOUSEHOLD MOVES, SOMETIMES TO PLACES FAR FROM FRIENDS AND FAMILY; FOR THE FAMILIES HELD TOGETHER, FOR THE ANNIVERSARIES, BIRTHDAYS, AND HOLIDAYS CELEBRATED ALONE; FOR THEIR HANDS EXTENDED TO ANOTHER MILITARY SPOUSE OR FAMILY WHEN THE NEED WAS THERE; AND FOR THE PRIDE IN SERVING THEIR COMMUNITIES.

3.  THE LIFE OF A MILITARY FAMILY IS A DEMANDING ONE, AND MANY OF ITS BURDENS NECESSARILY REST WITH OUR MILITARY SPOUSES SO OUR SAILORS CAN FOCUS ON THE MISSION AT HAND.  I EXTEND MY HEARTFELT THANKS TO ALL OUR NAVY FAMILIES FOR THEIR INVALUABLE CONTRIBUTIONS TO OUR READINESS, AND I URGE YOU TO TAKE THE TIME TO THANK YOUR SPOUSE FOR THEIR ROLE IN YOUR SUCCESS.  HONOR THEIR SERVICE TO THE NAVY AND THE NATION, AND LET THEM KNOW HOW MUCH THEIR SUPPORT MEANS TO US, NOT ONLY TODAY, BUT EVERY DAY.

4.  RELEASED BY ADMIRAL G. ROUGHEAD, CHIEF OF NAVAL OPERATIONS.//

  1. Well said.

    It does kind of crack me up that there’s a navadmin about it. I’m used to reading these regarding uniform regs and the like.
