Armed Forces Day

Friday, May 20th, 2011

May 21 is Armed Forces Day. The theme this year is: “United in Strength.”

It’s a day for parades, picnics and celebrations. Mostly, however, it is a day to honor all the brave men and women who have served in the United States Armed Forces.

In 1949, Secretary of Defense Louis Johnson officially announced the creation of one day to recognize all 5 branches of service: Armed Forces Day.

Our siblings. Most of us grew up with at least one brother or sister around.

We fought, played and laughed together. Then we fought some more. As we became adults, our relationships changed. Hopefully for the better. But no matter how we felt or feel about these people who share our parents, they are family.

Residents of Christchurch, New Zealand didn’t expect the 6.3 earthquake that violently struck their town on Tuesday, February 22. People were going about their daily routines at work, school and local shops. Then life as they knew it suddenly stopped.
