Governor Nikki Haley joined S.C. Adjutant General Major General Robert E. Livingston Jr., Brigadier General Bradley Becker, the Commanding General at Fort Jackson Army Base, and Colonel Mike Metzler of the S.C. Air National Guard in announcing Military Spouse Appreciation Day last week.

The governor issued a statewide proclamation declaring Friday, May 9 as Military Spouse Appreciation Day throughout South Carolina.

President Ronald Reagan signed a nationwide proclamation officially recognizing Military Spouse Appreciation Day for the first time in 1984.

“I am the proud wife of a soldier and I know what it’s like when your soldier deploys,” said Gov. Haley. “Military spouses make sure that our soldiers don’t have to worry.”
