~ Armed Forces Day ~

President Harry S. Truman led the effort to establish a single holiday for citizens to come together and thank our military members for their patriotic service in support of our country.


We celebrate our Armed Forces, in the work they do, the tasks they accomplish, the hope and freedom they bring to the world, and the outstanding people who comprise our military services. Join us on Saturday May 16th, in honoring those tremendous individuals: The Soldiers, Sailors, Marines, Airmen and Guards [Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force, Coast Guard, National Guard] in their efforts to safeguard our freedoms, the world and our future!

Thank you to all the men and women who are serving and to all who actively support them. America has the best military in the world. Our troops have shouldered the burden, paid the price and protected us. They have never let us down. It has been the other way around on occassion. I hope we never let them down again.
