Commanding Officers from military commands across Escambia County, nominate one of their active duty Service Member’s spouse, who has had a significant impact in support of the command and its military mission. The Pensacola Navy League then coordinates with local government officials to establish a Military Spouse Appreciation Day to honor each nominee. The nominees are celebrated during a lunch ceremony, held in May. The Guest Speaker for the event was Mrs Amy Cozad. The Master of Ceremonies was Ms Sue Straughn of WEAR TV-3.
