Armed Forces Day

Tomorrow is Armed Forces Day. I would have waited to post this until then, however there are so many things for May 19th this year..that I decided to space them out. Armed Forces Day is always the third Saturday in May each year. It is a day to recognize the sacrifice the men and women of ALL our armed forces have made. Prior to 1949 there were separate holidays for each branch of the military service. In August of '49 Harry S Truman combined those separate days into one holiday called Armed Forces Day. We have been celebrating it every since.

So tomorrow remember to show your appreciation for the members of the Armed Forces. Proudly fly your American Flag and your POW Flag if you own one. Personally I will be thanking those men and women I know who bravely served our country in peacetime and while at war.
