May 21st

Posted by terrepruitt on May 21, 2011

 

 

May 21st is Armed Forces Day.

“President Harry S. Truman led the effort to establish a single holiday for citizens to come together and thank our military members for their patriotic service in support of our country.”

This day  replaced  “separate Army, Navy, Marine Corps and Air Force Days. The single-day celebration stemmed from the unification of the Armed Forces under one department — the Department of Defense.”

I believe that we sometimes forget the sacrifices that are made. Regardless of our beliefs or political inclinations, regardless of how we feel about war there are people who volunteer to protect us and this country.  With their service they and their families make HUGE sacrifices.  This day was created so that we could thank them all.

Other things might distract us from stopping and taking a moment to recognize the reality of the situation.  If you have a chance thank someone in the military for all they have done.
