Celebrating National Military Spouse Appreciation Day!

Posted on May 11, 2018 by Emily Nunez | 0 Comments

Here at Sword & Plough, we are very excited to celebrate and honor National Military Spouse Appreciation Day! Military spouses play an integral role in the military community and also make up a large portion of the Sword & Plough team! Our founders grew up in a military family and were inspired by both their mom (military spouse) and dad (Army officer) to start Sword & Plough! Their mom, Judy, even made the first Sword & Plough bag! Today and every day, we honor military spouses with a lifetime 20% Off Military Discount. Below are a few of the many incredible military spouses who make Sword & Plough possible!
