May was Military Appreciation Month and many businesses responded with some great support to the military community! Did you know about Military Spouse Appreciation Day? Armed Services Day? Memorial Day?
We received some great coverage from CNN on Military Spouse Appreciation Day with our blog on 101 Ways to Thank a Military Spouse! When they made contact about our blog and talked about it live on CNN, we jumped a bit with excitement! CNN recognized that we were supporting this great group of patriots and we asked them to “Tell Our Story” and they did! After their coverage and being posted on several Facebook pages including the official US Army page the blog went viral!
Military spouses live in a tough environment with stress, taking care of their family during deployments, managing a home by themselves, long family separations, difficult social and spiritual challenges due to frequent relocations and other military lifestyle issues. We simply laid out some ideas how to thank them for their sacrifices and provided some appreciation as well! CNN liked it and broadcast it! Do you have a unique product? Take care of the military community in a special way? We want to post it for you! We want to “Tell your story”! We have over 100 categories of businesses from Apartments to Worship where you can “Tell your story”!
During our attendance at the May Field Exercise at Ft Knox hosted by the Army Wife Network we had some great businesses reach out and open their doors to the military community! They came up with some great giveaways and coupons for the two day event! See the wonderful Alpha Salon and Spa’s ad on MilitaryAvenue as they continue to reach out! What are you doing to help locally? “Tell your story”!
But it is always better to know about events in the future so you can plan ahead! Get ready for events and learn how to reach out to and even help let the military community! Let them know they are appreciated year round like Home Depot! We wrote about their efforts to support the military community with employment, discounts and housing last month too! Twice!
