May 15, 2021 – While we are always honoring all Veterans and their families for their sacrifice and dedication to our Nation, today we honor veterans who are currently serving in our Armed Forces.  Armed Forces Day is celebrated every year on the 3rd Saturday in the month of May.

In 1961, John F. Kennedy declared this day a national holiday.  This day honors members serving in all of our six branches of the US Military including Air Force, Navy, Army, Coast Guard, Marine Corps, and Space Force.  Veterans currently serving in the National Guard or the Reserves are also honored on Armed Forces Day. There are many other countries that also honor this day!
