KILLEEN, Texas (KWTX) Hundreds of Fort Hood spouses got some special treatment Friday at H-E-B in Killeen in celebration of national Military Spouse Day.

At three different locations across the state, H-E-B provided a spa day for registered spouses.

Women could get their nails and eyelashes done, build their own home bath salt kit and enjoy refreshments.

The wives say they felt pampered by the experience and were happy to be appreciated.

"It does feel really nice because it’s hard to be away from home.” Bonnie Robinson said.

“So it’s something where I can feel closer to the community by doing this, meeting some of the actual employees that work here and live here."

H-E-B says the event is the company’s way of saying thank you to spouses for being part of the community and for the bravery they show every day.
