A note from our National Director, Amy Tuschen:
May 12th marks the celebration of Military Spouse Appreciation Day, a time to honor and recognize the immense contributions made by military spouses in supporting our nation’s service members. From the perspective of the SCRA, if you have a spouse that should be recognized for volunteer support to a Signal unit see the below info on awards. Another way to honor a spouse is with Signal Corps jewelry; check out the store for the items we currently carry.
It is our pleasure to update our members on activities happening within the SCRA. We will routinely send out these newsletters to keep you informed. Please tell us if you have feedback or other information you want on the site or receive updates about. Chapters can provide short updates that would be of interest to their chapter and other members.
