It’s Time For You to Choose the Next Military Spouse of the Year – This Is How!

10 Years of Advocacy: It’s time for you to choose who will win the 2017 Armed Forces Insurance Military Spouse of the Year award.

There are hundreds of awards presented in the military. If you’re a military spouse, chances are your spouse’s dress uniform is covered in them.

But in the military spouse community, we know there are no delicately placed rows of ribbons for each spouse’s milestones in this crazy, wonderful military life. Sometimes, your sacrifice and hours of hard work every day seem to go completely unnoticed.

There IS a way to recognize the commitment and dedication of military spouses.

By taking two minutes of your time to nominate someone to be the next Military Spouse of the Year, you can change a military spouse’s life and the lives of military families all across the world. These are five types of spouses you can (and should!) nominate right now at I know you know some pretty amazing spouses, and we need to meet them.

  1. The spouse who has passion and needs to give back
    The best candidates for this award are those who have more passion than they know what to do with. It doesn’t mean he or she is the loudest person in the room, but the one that makes the most difference in your life and the lives of others. The first smile from a stranger at your new installation after a PCS. The spouse who stockpiles non-perishable food items from every corner his or her house for the upcoming food drive. The spouse who spends every waking minute researching how upcoming health care changes will affect their children and then does something about it. Yep – that passionate person you’re thinking about right now … nominate them for Military Spouse of the Year®.
  1. The spouse who sees a problem and fixes it
    Do you know of a spouse who has done amazing things for your installation? Someone who has made changes to your childcare system or has started a fitness campaign that you don’t know how your installation could survive without? Help them share those accomplishments with a much bigger audience by nominating them for Military Spouse of the Year®! By nominating them you can be the first step in spreading their hard work to the entire armed forces.
  1. The spouse who knows what the people want
    Who knows better than anyone what the military community needs? I’ll give you a big hint: It’s not Congress. It’s the people who walk the walk, talk the talk and live their lives in the proverbial trenches of military life. Help elect people who won’t turn their backs on promises that have been made. If you’ve never seen how far a military spouse will go to protect what’s theirs, nominate them, vote, and then watch them make an even bigger difference after going through the Military Spouse of the Year® (MSOY) award program.
  1. The spouse who has a great idea but needs a bigger reach
    We all know it’s the squeaky wheel that gets the oil. But what happens when the wheel can’t squeak loud enough? The Military Spouse of the Year® award program is the megaphone for the military community. It’s the platform spouses need to make their advocacy nationally known. From “Fox & Friends” to the “Today Show” to “Oprah,” our winners are getting the chance, year after year to speak out on a huge scale. The more support you give, the higher that platform becomes.
  1. The spouse who deserves some recognition
    Whether you’re a member of the military community or you’re a patriotic American, you know of the hardships and adversity millions of military families face each day. But our servicemen and women still raise their right hands and their spouses vow to stand beside them. If nothing else, it would be our honor to acknowledge these men and women for this renowned award.


I could go on for days about the amazing people who are part of the MSOY family, but we don’t have that kind of time. Read more about the rules and regulations at Then take two minutes and nominate one of the spouses in your life by Jan. 31 on It could truly change military lives for years to come. We can’t wait to meet this year’s nominees!
