Armed Forces Day

Today is Armed Forces Day! This holiday honors all of the men and women who serve our country and protect our freedom! In 1949, Louis Johnson (the Secretary of Defense) suggested that the United States should have a day to celebrate all of its military branches. On February 9, 1950, President Truman proclaimed the first ever Armed Forces Day.

Communities all across the country celebrate Armed Forces Day with parades, receptions, and air shows. There is a different theme for the event every year. Some examples of past themes include liberty, freedom, professionalism, and security.

To celebrate Armed Forces Day, attend a local parade or reception and thank service men and women for their dedication!
