Military Special Needs Network

Proudly Supporting all Military Families with a Special Needs Dependent

May 11, 2012: Honoring Karen Sweeney – Military Spouse of the Day!

Karen, a Coast Guard wife, has been married to her Guardsman for eleven years. They are currently stationed on the USCG Cutter Tahoma in Portsmouth, New Hampshire.

When asked what her favorite part is about being a Military spouse, Karen laughed and said, “Honestly, my favorite part is having excellent medical benefits for my daughter!”

If she could go back and give herself one piece of advice before becoming a military spouse, Karen would tell herself to “be flexible and keep in mind that there are more pros than cons.”

Karen is her daughter’s voice and is a strong advocate in all areas. She researches and continuously speaks up for the things that will be of benefit for her child. Karen believes in Community, and is so appreciative of those that support her and her family’s journey in the special needs world within the Military.

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