Armed Forces Day - Saturday, May 19

Tomorrow is Armed Forces Day. It is the day that we honor our troops who are protecting us and defending us aroung the world. it was signed into law by President Harry Truman, and 1950 saw the first Armed Forces Day.

"This is the day on which we have the welcome opportunity to pay special tribute to the men and women of the Armed Forces ... to all the individuals who are in the service of their country all over the world. Armed Forces Day won't be a matter of parades and receptions for a good many of them. They will all be in line of duty and some of them may give their lives in that duty." - New York Times, May 17, 1952

What are you going to do for Armed Forces Day? For some of my readers - THANK YOU and I wish you a wonderful day. For others, I thank you for the support you give your spouses and your children and your adopted troops. For the rest of you, what are you going to do tomorrow? Here are some suggestions....

    Join a Support Group

    Visit a Veteran's Hospital in your area. Find them here.

    Visit your local Recruiters Office - take donuts or a cake!!!

    Say 'Thank you' to a member of the Armed Services.

    If all else fails, send me an email for 'Any Soldier' and I will send them on to one of 'my kids'.

    Once, again, you prove yourself gutless and vile beyond comprehension.

    If you don't have the courage to sign your smut - don't send it.

    If you don't like my site - don't read it.

    But, NO ONE gets to be disrepectful here.

    And, yes, I take a cake to our recruiters every year and it makes their day - because, they also have to deal with a$$hats like you.
