Military Family Appreciation Month Is Here

Military Family Appreciation Month Is Here

Every year, the month of November is declared as Military Family Appreciation Month. This month-long celebration recognizes the selflessness from servicemembers’ families and their commitment to our country. Military spouses and family members have to relocate often and deal with frequent deployments, so we need to show them our appreciation. We created a list with some ways you can show your gratitude to these family members:

  1. Be sure to say, “Thank you.” This is the simplest way to show your admiration, but you’ll be surprised by how meaningful it can be.
  2. Help in the household. While a service member is deployed, the spouse is solely responsible for all the household responsibilities. Offer to lighten the load by assisting with household chores.
  3. Donate to a military charity. There are several organizations that help service members and their families.
  4. Cook. Give the spouse a meal to reduce the stress of preparing food. November also includes Thanksgiving. Make this holiday easier for military families by cooking for them or inviting them to your holiday events.
  5. Create a spouse care package. This package could include books, food, movies, and household items like batteries.
  6. Be a friend. Be willing to sit and listen to their needs.
  7. Employers, hire a military spouse. The Joining Forces Initiative aims at providing jobs to military families. Having to frequently relocate makes it hard for a military spouse to keep a position for an extended period.
  8. Businesses, offer military discounts.
  9. Military families give our servicemembers much-needed support. We need to stand with our military families and show them that their generosity has been noticed so they can stay strong and pass that strength onto their servicemembers.

Please let us know how you will be celebrating military families this month in the comments below!

    As a female military veteran, I just wanted to say how much I appreciate your support. You offer 10% discount to Vets for each and every order, and seem particularly supportive of the men and women in the military on a regular basis. Just one more reason, I don’t need to buy ejuice anywhere else !
