Today 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.

 On August 31, 1949, Secretary of Defense Louis Johnson announced the creation of an Armed Forces Day to replace separate Army, Navy, Marine Corps and Air Force Days.
The single day celebration stemmed from the unification of the Armed Forces under the Department of Defense.

So today take a moment to be grateful for the sacrifices of the men and women that wear our country’s uniform and who go willingly into harm’s way to keep us safe.
Remember to display your America Flag and if you see a soldier, sailor, marine or veteran – stop and say thanks
– it’s the least we can do to show our appreciation….

I'm not in to Rap - But I liked this:

Today's Reflection:
"The Tree of Liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of Patriots and Tyrants."
-Thomas Jefferson

Live Long and Prosper...
