NC DMVA Announces Military Spouse Appreciation Day

Raleigh - The NC Department of Military and Veterans Affairs (NC DMVA) announced this week, a Military Spouse Appreciation day that will honor the Military spouses around us who have the greatest impact on our lives and our military communities.  It's our mission to salute the wives, husbands, mothers, and fathers, who played an important role in their families; while their love ones answered the call and sacrificed for our country.
