Mr. BURR (for himself, Mrs. FEINSTEIN, and Mrs. BOXER) submitted the following resolution; which was considered and agreed to:

S. Res. 160

Whereas the month of May marks ``National Military Appreciation Month'';

Whereas military spouses provide vital support to men and women in the Armed Forces and help to make the service of such men and women in the Armed Forces possible;

Whereas military spouses have been separated from loved ones because of deployment in support of overseas contingency operations and other military missions carried out by the Armed Forces;

Whereas the establishment of ``Military Spouse Appreciation Day'' is an appropriate way to honor the spouses of members of the Armed Forces; and

Whereas May 6, 2011, would be an appropriate date to establish as ``Military Spouse Appreciation Day'': Now, therefore, be it

Resolved, That the Senate--

(1) designates May 6, 2011, as ``Military Spouse Appreciation Day'';

(2) honors and recognizes the contributions made by spouses of members of the Armed Forces; and

(3) encourages the people of the United States to observe ``Military Spouse Appreciation Day'' to promote awareness of the contributions of spouses of members of the Armed Forces and the importance of the role of military spouses in the lives of members of the Armed Forces and veterans.
