Appreciate Your Freedom Thank An Armed Forces Member
May 16, 2017 | Kim Higgins
Let’s take a moment to pay tribute to all the men and women who support our military. Armed Forces Day, which is celebrated this year on May 20, 2017, is the day on which we recognize and appreciate members of the military. Armed Forces Day was established in 1949 in order to combine Army, Navy, Marine Corps and Air Force into one celebration. Prior to this, each branch was celebrated individually. In addition, the Coast Guard was added in 1967 to be honored equally with the other military branches.
