Armed Forces Day 2023

President Truman led the effort to establish a holiday for citizens to unite and honor our military heroes for their patriotic service in support of the United States of America. in 2023, Armed Forces Day USA is celebrated on Saturday, MAY 20th.

Armed Forces Day, above all, honors the dedicated individuals who wear the uniforms of their country. Each serviceman, wherever he may be, whatever his task, contributes directly and importantly to the defense of the nation. The task of each one is the task of all the armed forces: to protect the freedoms which underlie the greatness of America.” — General Earle G. Wheeler

Our nation will remain the land of the free only so long as it is the home of the brave.  Thank you and God Bless Our Troops!
