WASHINGTON, April 28, 2014 – The American Forces Network Broadcast Center has established a hashtag for Facebook users to help AFN honor military spouses during Military Spouses Appreciation Day on May 10.

The initiative will center on a special hashtag -- #spouseappreciation -- that Facebook users can include in posts and photos that pay tribute to military spouses.

On May 9, the broadcast center will encourage its audiences to use the hashtag and will search for these posts and photos to create a TV spot honoring military spouses, officials said. Local AFN television radio and television stations will incorporate some of the posts into their programming, they added.

Facebook users can type the #spouseappreciation hashtag into the Facebook search window to see all of the posts and photos that include it, regardless of which Facebook page was used to make the post.
