Armed Forces Day

Military Appreciation Month isn’t just Military Spouse Appreciation Day and Memorial Day. It includes Armed Forces Week and Armed Forces Day!

Today, May 18, 2013 is Armed Forces Day. And this year Armed Forces Week is Saturday, May 11 to Sunday, May 19. Armed Forces Week starts on the 2nd Saturday on May and ends on the 3rd Sunday.

Armed Forces Day was formed to celebrate all 5 branches of our military in one day instead of having 5 separate days. It has been observed for over 60 years!

Today is a day to honor everyone serving in the 5 branches of the US military. Let the military hero in your life know you appreciate them today and everyday!

Happy Armed Forces Day! Thank you to all who serve!

Here’s a great photo the U.S. Coast Guard posted on their Facebook page today:
