Proudly Supporting all Military Families with a Special Needs Dependent

May 7, 2012 – Honoring Amanda Pace – Military Spouse of the Day

Amanda is a Navy wife and her family is stationed at Naval Station Great Lakes. She and her husband have been together for almost four years and will be celebrating their second wedding anniversary in July.   Amanda says,  “My favorite thing about being a military spouse is being able to see the pride and joy that my husban…d has for serving his country. Despite the trials that military life brings, my husband has always wanted to serve this great nation and it’s an honor to be even a small part of that process, whether it’s packing up a care package to sustain him during a deployment, preparing a dinner for single sailors or helping other spouses during difficult times. I really enjoy it all.”


When asked what advice she would give herself prior to becoming a military spouse, Amanda said it would be to always be organized.  Change is such a huge part of military life and organization, according to Amanda, is key to success.  “Having important records, finances, and your home organized helps preserve time, energy, and sanity during the most difficult times”, Amanda says.


Amanda is a wonderful advocate for her son, who is feeding-tube dependent, and for her newborn daughter, who was just diagnosed with epilepsy.  She wants to create awareness for all those dealing with issues that she cannot fully comprehend, wanting to make life better for those who are the most vulnerable.  Amanda knows that lending her voice to help is the right thing to do.


The Military Special Needs Network honors and salutes Amanda Pace as  the Military Spouse of the Day! We thank you for being such a wonderful military spouse and an amazing advocate for special needs!
