Honoring Love, Unity, and Sacrifice

At Military Marriage Day, we believe in the power of love, commitment, and the unique bond shared by military couples. With our dedicated annual celebration, we aim to recognize and honor the incredible sacrifices and resilience of these extraordinary relationships.

For military couples, the challenges they face can be immense - deployments, separations, and frequent relocations. Yet, through it all, we are there to help their love and commitment prevail. Military Marriage Day serves as a reminder to the world of the strength and unity found within these unions as well as support them when times are hard.

By celebrating Military Marriage Day, we not only pay tribute to the unwavering dedication of military couples but also shed light on the importance of supporting and nurturing these relationships. It is a day to honor their sacrifices and recognize the unique struggles they endure, standing as a symbol of resilience and love.

Volunteers & Advocacy

MMD Ambassadors

Military Marriage Day is made possible because of our phenomenal network of volunteers who advocate for service marriages nationally and OCONUS.

The MMD Ambassadors inform their local area on the mission and resources found through Military Marriage Day. They are the hosts of our live events and share their stories during our virtual experiences.  

Their selfless effort and bold action is the heart beak of this movement. Because of their advocacy, Military Marriage Day is acknowledge nationally with our Push for Proclamations!
