In 2013, Military Spouse magazine expanded the Armed Forces Insurance Military Spouse of the Year®

program by introducing an installation echelon. Nominations are now aggregated at the base (Air Force,

Army, Marine Corps, Navy), district (Coast Guard), and state level (National Guard). Voters then elected a

base level winner at each of these installations. The Base Level Spouses of the Year represent the best

of the base, and are a key component in the grass roots level of communication in the military community.

“Military spouses are often the unrecognized champions on the home front. They maintain the home and

family during lengthy deployments, advocate for our service members, veterans and military children and

selflessly give back to our communities through volunteer work and moral support. On behalf of Armed

Forces Insurance, we salute each of you!” said Lori Simmons, Assistant Vice President of Marketing &

Communications at Armed Forces Insurance.

The overall winner and 2016 Armed Forces Insurance Military Spouse of the Year®, will be revealed at a

VIP ceremony in Washington, D.C in early May.  Base level winners, military officials and key leaders in

the spouse community are invited to the luncheon.  For additional information on the Military Spouse of
