 Post subject: Armed Forces Day!
PostPosted: Sat May 16, '09, 4:15 pm 
Armed Forces Day is being celebrated today, Saturday, May 16, 2009. This is an annual celebration usually held on the 3rd Saturday in May in the USA, I believe. Other countries celebrate this day also, but some of those countries have different days on which to celebrate or observe this day.

Here are a few links I found to tell a little bit more about this special day and why it is celebrated and observed:

President Barack Obama issued a proclamation for celebrating this day:

I don't think I have ever actually seen anyone celebrating this holiday. That seems like a shame, really. Veteran's day seems to get more mention.

Bumping this up as I forgot to do it the other day as Armed Forces Day was being celebrated in May 2017. Don't want to completely forget such an important day so here is the post, a bit late.
