Armed Forces Day is the day we celebrate our military in whole!
Before 1950, each branch of the military was celebrated on its own day. Now, Armed Forces Day unites them all; celebrate the Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force and Reserves on the third Saturday in May.
Armed Forces Day is a great time to help veterans in your community and say thank you. We do annually be participating in our local Armed Forces Celebration. Here our local military is invited to a BBQ. This year’s is at High West Energy and open to active duty and veterans, as well as their families. In fact, families are encouraged and there will even be a fun jump house for the kiddos.
Whether you shake a veteran’s hand and thank them for their service or you donate to a veteran’s organization today, there are many ways to show your support. We just hope you take a few moments to stop and thank them all for their service and dedication to make our Nation safe.
