Happy Armed Forces Day!

On the third Saturday in May for the last 64 years, our nation has celebrated Armed Forces Day to honor those who are currently serving in the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard. As President Dwight D. Eisenhower said in 1953, “It is fitting and proper that we devote one day each year to paying special tribute to those whose constancy and courage constitute one of the bulwarks guarding the freedom of this nation and the peace of the free world.”

This year on May 17, we salute our Soldiers’ courage, honor, strength, duty, dedication, excellence, valor, commitment, and professionalism.

Happy Armed Forces Day from all of us at On Your Guard.
