Military Spouse Poems

Appreciation for Military Wives

Military Spouse Thank You Poems

While every day is a good time to thank a military spouse, there are several occasions that arise where we look for that special poem to say, “Thank You.”

The special time might be:

  • Military Spouse Appreciation Day,
  • A military retirement ceremony, or
  • A celebration with inlaws

Here’s a collection of poems with sources we’ve been able to identify:


The Silent Ranks

I wear no uniforms, no blues or army greens

But I am in the Army in the ranks rarely seen

I have no rank upon my shoulders – salutes I do not give

But the military world is the place where I live

I’m not in the chain of command, orders I do not get

But my husband is the one who does, this I can not forget

I’m not the one who fires the weapon, who puts my life on the line

But my job is just as tough. I’m the one that’s left behind

My husband is a patriot, a brave and prideful man

And the call to serve his country not all can understand

Behind the lines I see the things needed to keep this country free

My husband makes the sacrifice, but so do our kids and me

I love the man I married, Soldiering is his life

But I stand among the silent ranks known as the Army Wife
