Chattanoogan.com: Corker Supports Military Spouse Benefits Boost

May 8, 2008

Sen. Bob Corker today recognized Military Spouse Day, which falls on Friday, May 9, by urging Congress to pass his bipartisan bill that will expand benefits for military spouses. In 1984 President Reagan signed a proclamation establishing Military Spouse Day to pay tribute to the contributions of military spouses in the defense of the nation.

“Military spouses make tremendous sacrifices everyday to support their loved ones who are bravely serving our country,” Sen. Corker said. “I join all Tennesseans and all Americans in thanking America’s military spouses for their extraordinary commitment to our armed forces and our nation.”
