Today is Armed Forces Day, a time for our nation to come together and express our appreciation for those who are currently serving in defense of the country.
Armed Forces Day was established to replace separate Army, Navy, Marine Corps, and Air Force Days into a single-day celebration in 1949.
Every year, the President issues a proclamation for Armed Forces Day, you can read 2021’s here: https://www.whitehouse.gov/briefing-room/presidential-actions/2021/05/14/a-proclamation-on-armed-forces-day-2021/.
Last but certainly not least, the SITREP would like to thank every Airman, Coast Guard, Guard, Marine, Sailor, and Soldier out there. Thank you for your service!
