Happy Armed Forces Day!

   Today, May 21, 2011 is the day that we honor salute the brave women and men who serve in our Armed Forces. In war and peace these brave individuals make sacrifices far beyond what most of us appreciate. In the name of freedom, they give up the comfort and convenience of civilian life in order to protect our rights and liberties. God Bless them and their bravery and their commitment to protect our United States of America.
   President Harry S. Truman led the effort to establish a single holiday for citizens to come together and thank all of our military members for their patriotic service in support of our country and it became so in 1949.
