The third Saturday of each May is Armed Forces Day.  Today honors everyone serving in the United States military branches -- Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Marines, Navy.

 

President John F. Kennedy established Armed Forces Day as an official holiday in 1962, however it was President Harry S. Truman, who began the effort to set aside a day to recognize the service of our armed forces. In 1949,  Armed Forces Day was established to replace individual Army, Navy, Marine Corps, U.S. Coast Guard and Air Force Days. Armed Forces Day ends the observance of Armed Forces Week, which begins the second Saturday in May.

 

Armed Forces Day seems to be a holiday that seems to fall "under the radar," as compared with Memorial Day and Veteran's Day. But please take this opportunity to observe Armed Forces Day and Week by thanking a member of our brave military for their patriotism, their heroism, their service, and their sacrifice. There is a very true saying that "heroes don't wear capes, they wear dog tags."

 

 

 

 

 

"Never in the history of the world has any soldier sacrificed more for the freedom and liberty of total strangers than the American soldier."

 

... Zell Miller

 

 

"The cost of freedom is always high, but Americans have always paid it. And one path we shall never choose and that is the path of surrender or submission."

 

... John F. Kennedy

 

Thank you to military on Armed Forces Day

Thanks, Barbara, for the reblog and for helping spread the word. I really believe we need to be doing more as a society to recognize our military service people during and after their service.
