Assembly Resolution No. 375
BY: M. of A. Barrett
        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
  RESOLVED,  That  a  copy  of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be
transmitted to The Honorable Andrew M. Cuomo, Governor of the  State  of
New York.
