Military Days to Remember

Now that we flag season has officially kicked off, in early May, there are many ways to show your patriotism and honor our military. There are many military days to remember throughout the year. 

Armed Forces Day is celebrated in the United States on the third Saturday of May which concludes Armed Forces Week which begins on the second Saturday of May. This is the day that the US honors members from every branch of the US military. This holiday was created in 1949 by President Harry S. Truman, he established a single holiday to replace the separate celebrations and thank active military members for their patriotic service in support of our country. It was intended to replace Army Day, Navy Day, and Air Force Day, Marine Corps Day, and Coast Guard Days, however these days are still observed. Proudly fly your flag at full staff on Armed Forces Day.

Memorial Day is the last Monday of May and honors those who lost their lives serving in the military. Your flag should be flown at half-staff from sunrise to noon, then proudly raise the flag to full staff.
