As the nation gears up to honor the resilience and sacrifice of military spouses on Military Spouse Appreciation Day, an unprecedented event is set to unfold near Fort Liberty, on May 2, 2024. The event, the largest of its kind, will unite 400+ military spouses in a paintball competition across 100 acres of playing field at Black Ops Paintball. Eight teams of 50 military spouses will each be led by professional paintball players from the Women’s National League (WNXL) leading teams alongside esteemed members of the military community.

The event, organized by military spouse-owned Instant Teams and Twelve Million Plus, promises an unforgettable experience that celebrates the invaluable contributions of military spouses with an added layer of fun, community and connection. 

Set against the backdrop of the sprawling 400-acre campus of veteran-owned BlackOps Paintball with the teams outfitted by Empire Paintball, participants will engage in adrenaline-pumping paintball matches with guidance from professional paintball players.

“Every May we aim to do something above and beyond the norm for Military Spouse Appreciation. As a military spouse-founded company committed to employment & quality of life for military spouses, this year we wanted to get outdoors and provide an experience! Whether Active Duty, Retiree, Veteran, Gold Star, National Guard, or Reserve Spouse – this day is for all military spouses. Our goal is instant connection with others who’ve walked in your shoes, finding new friends, removing people from the rigor of day-to-day life and just having fun!”

The event is exclusively available to military spouses and is free of charge. Participants will have the opportunity to join a team of their choice and receive a complimentary jersey.

Military-affiliated brands participating in the event include: Empire Paintball, Team Red, White & Blue, Spouse-ly, Fort Liberty Military Spouse of the Year: Lexie Coppinger, Moore & Co., R.Riveter, Rick’s Place and the YMCA.
