Use Your Imagination

Armed Forces Day is May 20th!

This is a day to honor all the men and women in all branches of the service who protect our country and us. They are called upon at a moment’s notice to perform risky and perilous missions for freedom and our country. This came about when Secretary of Defense Louis Johnson, in 1949, announced the creation of Armed Forces Day so all military branches could celebrate on the same day. President Truman also announced the holiday in a presidential proclamation in 1950.

Celebrate Armed Forces Day this year by writing about someone in your family or that you know who served in the armed forces!
