The Official Armed Forces Day Proclamation

The Official Armed Forces Day Proclamation

Once upon a time, there such a thing as “Navy Day” celebrated across the United States. For what it’s worth, there was also an Army Day, but with the creation of the Department of Defense in the late 1940’s, President Truman directed all of the other days to be combined into a single “armed forces Day” to honor all of the Services AND the millions of Veterans who have served in them.

The President called upon the nation to display the colors at their homes, and to recognize the “skill, gallantry and the uncompromising devotion to duty characteristic of the Armed Forces in carry out their assigned missions.”

It is a day to celebrate all things Military.
