USAA Military Spouse Appreciation Week Registration Deadline extended to May 3rd

 

Morale, Welfare and RecreationFort Campbell, KY – The registration deadline for the USAA Military Spouse Appreciation Week, which runs May 7th to 11th, 2012, has been extended through midnight May 3rd, 2012.

Military Spouses are an invaluable asset to the Army. They support their Soldiers though mission, deployment, reintegration and reset, and keep the home fires burning. The Army recognizes the support and sacrifices made with Military Spouse Appreciation Day May 7th, 2012.

USAA Military Spouse Appreciation Week is May 7th-11th, 2012

Fort Campbell will express gratitude to Spouses in a week’s worth of events and activities from May 7th through May 11th, 2012. This year’s theme “Bloom Where You Are Planted” embodies the understanding that military Spouses may get uprooted frequently through PCS moves, but they personally develop and grow from their experiences and sacrifices in each new environment.

Events kick off May 7th with the Military Spouse Workshop Day at 8:15am in the Family Resource Center (FRC). The Workshop Day is full of activities that will uplift, enlighten and motivate Spouses.

Maria McConville, wife of Maj. Gen. James C. McConville, commanding general of the 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault) and senior installation commander of Fort Campbell, KY, will be the guest speaker and give opening remarks at this event.

Throughout the day, Spouses can participate in four different seminars. Seminar topics range from basic auto care, Federal job opportunities using USA Staffing, Americana crafts, to much more.

Registration is required prior to the event and some seminars will have additional fees. Childcare and lunch will be provided.

Additional Military Spouse Appreciation Week activities include:
