Tomorrow, we celebrate Armed Forces Day–a day to honor the men and women who serve in our Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines and Coast Guard as well as our National Guard and Reserves. This day, which is part of a week-long tribute, was first established in 1949 and stemmed from the unification of our military forces under the Department of Defense. Special dedications, parades, military exhibits, themed motorcycle rides and educational activities for children are some of the ways Armed Forces Day is acknowledged, so you’ll want to check out the local listings to see what’s happening near you. But, most important, be sure to say thanks to those who so bravely and unselfishly protect our freedom!
This Sunday is Veterans Day–a special time to say thank you to all of our veterans who have served and are currently serving in our armed forces. We appreciate your sacrifices and remain inspired by your dedication in keeping this great nation safe.
