Senate Resolution No. 1373

BY: Senator BROOKS

MEMORIALIZING Governor Andrew M. Cuomo to proclaim
May 10, 2019, as Military Spouse Appreciation Day in
the State of New York

WHEREAS, America's military spouses are the backbone of the families
who support our troops during mission, deployment, reintegration and
reset; and

WHEREAS, Military spouses are silent heroes who are essential to the
strength of the nation, and they serve our country just like their loved
ones; and

WHEREAS, It is the sense of this Legislative Body to memorialize
Governor Andrew M. Cuomo to proclaim May 10, 2019, as Military Spouse
Appreciation Day in the State of New York, in conjunction with the
observance of National Military Spouse Appreciation Month; and

WHEREAS, On April 17, 1984, President Ronald Reagan recognized the
profound importance of spousal commitment to the readiness and
well-being of military members with Proclamation 5184; Congress
officially made Military Spouse Appreciation Day part of National
Military Appreciation Month in 1999; and

WHEREAS, Subsequently, the Department of Defense standardized the
date by declaring the Friday before Mother's Day every year as Military
Spouse Appreciation Day; and

WHEREAS, On Military Spouse Appreciation Day we honor the
contributions and sacrifices made by military spouses, whose commitment
and support help to keep our country safe; military spouses truly have a
great impact on our lives and our military communities; and

WHEREAS, Military spouses share a bond with each other, and share
valuable information pertaining to military news, benefits, fitness and
so much more; and

WHEREAS, In celebration of Military Spouse Appreciation Day, the
armed forces host special events and programs to inform, honor, and
recognize military spouses around the world; events range from spouse
appreciation luncheons to educational workshops, and spouse employment
fairs which pay tribute to military spouses; and

WHEREAS, National Military Spouse Appreciation Month recognizes the
spouses of those on active duty in all branches of the services, the
National Guard and Reserves, military retirees, and veterans; now,
therefore, be it

RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause in its deliberations to
memorialize Governor Andrew M. Cuomo to proclaim May 10, 2019, as
Military Spouse Appreciation Day in the State of New York; and be it
further

RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be
transmitted to The Honorable Andrew M. Cuomo, Governor of the State of
New York.
