Rice Krispies Treats Day

September 18 is Rice Krispies Treats Day!

Rice krispies treats were invented in 1939 by Kellogg worker and Campfire Girls Leader, Mildred Day, because she was looking for a special treat for her troop to sell. Over 70 years later, rice krispies treats are still a huge hit during celebrations, family gatherings, and as a pick-me-up snack.

Celebrate Rice Krispies Treats Day by making rice krispies treats, eating rice krispies treats, or doing a little of both! If you’re feeling adventurous, here’s a list of 50 different rice krispies treats recipes. Choose wisely!

United States Air Force Turns 65!

On this day in 1947, the United States Air Force (USAF)  was created as a separate branch of the military under the National Security Act of 1947.

The USAF’s birthday is not only a day to celebrate the Air Force but to celebrate and recognize the men and women who have served and currently serve on the USAF. Head over to the White House blog to read the Secretary of the Air Force Michael Donley’s, Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. Mark A. Welsh III’s and Chief Master Sgt. of the Air Force James Roy’s birthday message that recognizes the accomplishments the USAF has made.

If you know anyone who is a part of the Air Force, show them your thanks and appreciation. If you don’t know anyone in the Air Force, you can still honor those in service by sending a thank you message to a military family at whitehouse.gov.

Finally, take some time to learn more about the United States Air Force – it’s mission and values, history, and more – at Airforce.com.
