A day late, but sincere

President Harry S. Truman led the effort to establish a single holiday for citizens to come together and thank our military members for their patriotic service in support of our country.

On August 31, 1949, Secretary of Defense Louis Johnson announced the creation of an Armed Forces Day to replace separate Army, Navy, Marine Corps and Air Force Days. The single-day celebration stemmed from the unification of the Armed Forces under one department -- the Department of Defense.

The men and women who risk their lives for our freedoms, and often lose their lives, deserve our thanks and our support and honor for their service!

The third graders at Tussing Elementary School in Colonial Heights, Virginia recorded an absolutely wonderful tribute to our services that I think you'll be proud to hear and share!
