armedforcesdayToday, Saturday May 17, 2014 is Armed Forces Day when we honor the men and women of the US Armed Forces.  This day honoring a unified Armed Service was created in 1949 and signed into law by President Harry Truman.  As Former Secretary of Defense Melvin Laird so accurately noted “Our servicemen and women shoulder the burden of defense as one of the responsibilities of citizenship in this free country. Having participated in protecting our rights and having met oppression on the battlegrounds of the world, they are able to appreciate and savor the blessings of citizenship in the country they serve.”
