This year, on the OWN Network, Oprah is sharing her favorites with military spouses, saying “There’s nobody in the world more deserving of a day like you’re about to have.”
Among the wonderfully extravagant items such as a Tory Burch Michelle Tote, Michael Kors Glam Studded High Tops, and a Microsoft Surface Tablet were several health-related items intended to give the women some rest and relaxation for the sacrifice the families face while their spouses support and protect our country.
