Today Is National Armed Forces Day
by Jena Green
Today, May 19, is National Armed Forces Day. The day was first dedicated by President John F. Kennedy in 1961 to celebrate and commemorate our armed forces, as well as the men and women in uniform who serve their country with dignity and honor.
It’s no secret that the United States has the most impressive military on the planet. We went from being a small colonial militia to eventually winning both world wars, developing the atom bomb, and ruling the air, land, and sea. We manage to put fear in the hearts of terrorists and bad guys across the world every day.
And it’s pretty hard not to be moved every time you visit Arlington National Cemetery, our country’s most hallowed grounds. Especially when you hear “Taps” performed.
It’s important to be thankful for our armed services every day. But on a day like today, we should take some time to thank those who have been willing to sacrifice everything in the name of freedom.
