The AFI MSOY program holds the largest network of military spouse leaders and continues to recognize and celebrate those who make a difference within and outside their community.
WASHINGTON (PRWEB) December 05, 2022
Military spouses are the backbone of America's Armed Forces and play a critical role supporting our military service members. While millions of our nation's sons and daughters continue to serve proudly in harm's way for our freedom, more than 1 million military spouses maintain the homefront and contribute directly to our nation's defense. And so, nominations for the 2023 Armed Forces Insurance Military Spouse of the Year® (AFI MSOY) award are now open.
"For 16 years, Armed Forces Insurance has recognized the value and strength that military spouses bring to our military community. The AFI MSOY program holds the largest network of military spouse leaders and continues to recognize and celebrate those who make a difference within and outside their community.," says Lori Simmons, Chief Growth and Marketing Officer at Armed Forces Insurance.
The award recipients are inducted into a year-round program for military spouses to earn leadership credentials, expand their networks, learn valuable life and advocacy skills, and make a difference in their communities.
All nominees will go through four rigorous rounds of advancement, culminating in announcing the overall 2022 AFI MSOY recipient in our nation's capital in early May 2023. Nominees are judged on five core criteria: overall impact and involvement in the military community, exhibition of leadership skills, community building capability, communication skills, and overall personal story.
