Today. Thank you to our military.



That old man - he don't think like no old man...
Now I wouldn't want to be within 400 - 500 yards of one of them nuclear bombs when it goes off! WW1 Vet Old Man

If idiots could fly, this place would be an airport. And I'd be a TSA agent.

Yes and it's Not even listed on Any of my calendars. Armed Forces Day annually is on the third Saturday of May. I didn't know the following: "Armed Forces Day is also part of Armed Forces Week, which begins on the second Saturday of May."

As a Vietnam vet, it makes me a bit sad that I'm the one who mentioned it here.

Perhaps along a similar line; few are aware that this "honoring" day requires many of the honorees to work to prepare their facilities for civilian visitors, work on that Saturday shepherding those visitors around, and then work cleaning up after the events that were purportedly in their "honor".
