Armed Forces Day (U.S.)

May 21, 2016

United Kingdom ~ Worldwide

History of the American Soldier Poster
On the third Saturday in May U.S. citizens are urged to thank military members for their patriotic service. 

U.S. President Harry S. Truman led the effort to establish this holiday in 1949. Armed Forces Day replaced separate Army, Navy, Marine Corps and Air Force Days and recognized the unification of the Armed Forces under one department -- the Department of Defense.

United Kingdom
