May is For Our Military

by | Apr 27, 2018 | Community

 National Military Appreciation Month – Observed annually during the month of May Congress designated May as National Military Appreciation Month in 1999 to ensure the nation was given the chance to show their appreciation for members of the Armed Forces, past and present. Each year, the President makes a proclamation, reminding us of the important role the U.S. Armed Forces have played in the history and development of our country. We honor, recognize and express appreciation to all those men and women who have served, all who now serve in uniform, their families, and those who gave their lives in defense of our freedoms we all enjoy today. Armed Forces Day and Memorial Day are observed in May. Please take the time to reflect upon the sacrifices of our military and let our service members and veterans know that we care about them.
