Armed Force Day Celebration – Gifts Guide

Armed Forces Day is a special holiday for people all over the world to come together and thank the men and women of the United States Armed Forces. First conceived by President Harry S. Truman, the holiday was established in 1949.

The creation of a single-day celebration for all five branches of the United States military made sense due to its recent unification under the Department of Defense. Today, Armed Forces Day is celebrated on the third Saturday of every May, this year falling on May 15

Our troops spend years away from their family and loved ones just to protect us and put their lives on the line just for the sake we can still enjoy freedom.

This should not be taken for granted and at least we can show some token of appreciation and gratitude every time we see a man in uniform.
