US Armed Forces Day
On the third Sunday in May, we honor our defense forces.
[Well, at least I do. And I'm not alone here, no matter how many leftovers from the '60s turn up their old noses and sniff.]
So here's to you, men and women of the Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force, Coast Guard, Reserves, and National Guard. From the first recruit in the War for Independence to the last recruit who just put up his hand yesterday, and everyone in between who has taken up arms to defend our country:
Thank you for your sacrifice and service.
