FORT BENNING, GA (WTVM) - Friday was the day to celebrate what some call the unsung heroes of America - the wives and husbands of military members.
As part of the annual Military Spouse Appreciation Day activities were held on Fort Benning at the Army Community Service Headquarters.
The afternoon started with a free fitness class and ended with some major pampering. Spouses of active duty military were treated to hair services, manicures, massages and more.
Vendors were also on site with lots of food and free items for the spouses to take home. Wives like Kimberly Cizik really appreciated the recognition and pampering.
"Because the emphasis is always on the soldier, no soldiers are a huge part of the process of why we're here. I think it's beneficial to recognize the spouses cause we serve alongside them with everything that they do," Cizik said.
To cap off the Appreciation Week, singers Daughtry and Lecrae will perform at Wetherby Field on Saturday beginning at 6 p.m. The concert is free and open to the public.
