GENTEXT/RMKS/1. On behalf of all Marines, it is my distinct pleasure to recognize the contributions, support and sacrifices of our military spouses. I am continuously humbled by the strength and devotion our spouses display no matter the station or duty call.
2. President Ronald Reagan first set a day of appreciation for our military spouses in 1984. His recognition of the important role the military spouse has in the preparedness and well-being of our men and women in uniform still holds true today.
3. This year, we recognize military spouses on 8 May. Many thanks for your unwavering support and commitment to all Marines and Sailors. We appreciate who you are, what you do and the fidelity and faithfulness you so passionately give to our Corps.
4. Semper Fidelis, Joseph F. Dunford, Jr., General, U.S. Marine Corps, Commandant of the Marine Corps.//
