Armed Forces Day
May 18 is Armed Forces Day!  Armed Forces Day was proposed by President Truman, established in 1949, and first observed in 1950.  President Kennedy established the day as an official holiday in 1962.  The holiday is intended for honoring those serving in any branch of the U.S. military - Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force, or Coast Guard.  Armed Forces Day is often celebrated with parades, air shows, or other receptions.  The theme for this year's Armed Forces Day is "Strong and Resilient: Prepared to Meet Any Challenge."
