National Armed Forces Day 2024

Armed Forces Day is celebrated on the third Saturday in May each year to honor and recognize the men and women who serve in the United States Armed Forces. This day was established in 1949 to replace separate Army, Navy, Marine Corps, and Air Force Days and to promote unity among the military branches.

Armed Forces Day provides an opportunity for Americans to show appreciation and support for the sacrifices made by military personnel and their families. It is also a day to showcase the strength and capabilities of the U.S. military through various events and demonstrations. On this day, Americans are encouraged to thank and honor current and former military members and to recognize their contributions to the defense of our nation. Armed Forces Day is a reminder of the importance of our military and the sacrifices they make to protect our freedoms and way of life.

Veterans Day honors all those who have previously served in the military. We honor those men and women who have died serving in the United States Armed Forces on Memorial Day.

Welcome to the Average Joe Weekly blog. This is basically my place on the web where I can help spread some of the knowledge that I have accumulated over the years. I served 10+ years in the Marine Corps on Active Duty, but that was some 25 years ago.
