I recently opened a thread where users were debating about whether or not they considered military spouses as people that have “served”, or if they were more-so regarded as people that have “sacrificed” for their country. We all know that military spouses aren’t directly serving our country in the same sense that an active military member would. However, there’s a good reason they’re so strongly applauded during military ceremonies.
Military spouses make critical contributions in ensuring installations function properly. They also work double-time and fulfill the role of the military member during deployments and training. While veterans spend their time training and mentally preparing for what they’ll experience during a deployment, spouses are forced to blindly trust the process, even when media outlets are broadcasting the tragedies of war on a daily basis.
Now, just to be clear – I’m not claiming that things are completely doom and gloom for spouses because there are definitely perks that go along with being a part of the military system (e.g. travel, camaraderie, etc.). I’m also not going to solve the debate around “service” or “sacrifice”. What I am trying to say is that spouses make important sacrifices for our country, and should be included in more programs that are geared toward military appreciation.
