Today marks the 62nd celebration of Armed Forces Day.
On this day, we honor the members of the five military branches – Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Marines, and Navy – who are in service at home and abroad.
“Today let us, as Americans, honor the American fighting man. For it is he–the soldier, the sailor, the Airman, the Marine– who has fought to preserve freedom. It is his valor that has given renewed hope to the free world that by working together in discipline and faith our ideals of freedom will always prevail.” – Admiral Forrest P. Sherman
