President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump welcome military spouses to the White House on May 12, 2017, in advance of Mother's Day. The president proclaimed it Military Spouse Day, as former President Ronald Reagan did in 1984. Sunday is Mother's Day.

"Most military spouses hold no rank and wear no uniform, yet humbly serve our nation with distinction," Donald Trump wrote in the proclamation.
