For more than 35 years, the nation has paused on Military Spouse Appreciation Day, held on the Friday before Mother’s Day, to pay tribute to the service and sacrifice of the nation’s military spouses.
It was the Christmas that almost wasn’t.
For military families, deployment signals a call to serve not just for enlisted men and women but also for the spouses and children who love them.
Little boys and girls all over the world can’t wait for Christmas morning to arrive, but one non-profit group has been celebrating Christmas early by delivering presents to military families in North Carolina and South Carolina.
As an avid supporter of our U.S. military members, Penske Truck Rental is excited to once again team up with Support Military Spouses. In honor of National Military Spouse Appreciation Day on May 12, the nonprofit organization will use Penske trucks to deliver care packages to military wives and husbands serving on the home front.
In many cases, America’s military families function as teams. While service members are deployed to protect our freedoms at home or abroad, their spouses serve in a different way.
