Armed Forces Day is always celebrated on the third Saturday in May. In 2013, Armed Forces Day falls on May 18.
Armed Forces Day was established in 1949 as a way to unify all sectors of the United States Armed Forces. It is a holiday for American citizens to come together and show appreciation for all members of our military and pay tribute to soldiers in the Army, Air Force, Marines, and Navy.
If you know or happen to come across a member of our military – remember to thank them for their service and support today.
