SUBJ/MILITARY SPOUSE APPRECIATION DAY//
GENTEXT/REMARKS/1.  SINCE 1984, THE ARMED FORCES HAVE SET
ASIDE A SPECIAL DAY TO HONOR THE HEROES AT HOME - THE MEN
AND WOMEN WHO SUPPORT THEIR MILITARY SPOUSES.  THIS YEAR,
FRIDAY, 11 MAY 07, HAS BEEN DESIGNATED MILITARY SPOUSE
APPRECIATION DAY.
2.  THE LIFE OF A MILITARY FAMILY IS ONE OF UNIQUE CHALLENGES.
THESE CHALLENGES ARE CURRENTLY EXACERBATED BY THE HIGH
OPERATIONAL TEMPO OF THE MARINE CORPS.  IN SPITE OF THE
CHALLENGES, MILITARY SPOUSES CONTINUE TO DEMONSTRATE STRENGTH,
DEVOTION AND GRACE. MILITARY SPOUSES INSPIRE BY THEIR EXAMPLE
IN THE MANY SUPPORTING ROLES THEY PLAY INCLUDING SUPPORTING
BOTH MISSION AND FAMILY READINESS.
3.  AS WE CELEBRATE MILITARY SPOUSE APPRECIATION DAY, MY WIFE,
ANNETTE, AND I EXPRESS OUR HEARTFELT GRATITUDE TO ALL MARINE
CORPS SPOUSES FOR THEIR SUPPORT AND COMMITMENT TO THEIR
MARINES, THEIR FAMILIES AND THEIR COMMUNITIES.  I ALSO
ENCOURAGE MARINES TO TAKE THE TIME TO THANK OUR MARINE CORPS
SPOUSES, IN YOUR OWN SPECIAL WAY, FOR A JOB WELL DONE.
4.  SEMPER FIDELIS, JAMES T. CONWAY, GENERAL, U.S. MARINE
CORPS, COMMANDANT OF THE MARINE CORPS.//
