Honoring Hanscom spouses on Military Spouse Appreciation Day Published May 8, 2020 By Col. Chad Ellsworth 66th Air Base Group Commander HANSCOM AIR FORCE BASE, Mass. – Today is Military Spouse Appreciation Day and I want take this opportunity to celebrate and honor the many contributions to our military spouses at Hanscom. Thank you for your service and for the many sacrifices you make on behalf of our great nation. Our military and country are stronger because of your unwavering support to our service members. You provide stability during uncertain times as we are living through today. I am awestruck at how many Hanscom military spouses have reached out to volunteer to stock shelves and make face coverings to support our Hanscom community. We simply could not execute our mission or ensure the security of our national interests without you. You are all vital members of Team Hanscom.
