May 5 is USPTO Military Spouse Appreciation Day

The USPTO Military Association (UMA) will celebrate Military Spouse Appreciation Day May 5 from 12:30-1:30 p.m. in Madison West Room 5A44. Cake and refreshments will be served.

The event will celebrate the contributions of Military Spouses who work at the USPTO.  America’s Military Spouses are the backbone of the families who support our troops during mission, deployment, reintegration and reset.  They are the silent heroes who are essential to the strength of the nation and they serve our country just like their loved ones.

If you are a Military Spouse working at the USPTO, please contact the UMA at

The mission of the UMA is to provide fellowship, mentorship, and advocacy for military Veterans working at the USPTO, and to help educate others on the important contributions that Veterans have made – and continue to make – to the workforce and our nation. Membership is open to all USPTO employees.
