Armed Forces Day is a holiday to thank the men and women of the United States Armed Forces. First conceived by President Harry S. Truman, the holiday was established in 1949. The creation of a single day celebration for all five branches of the United States military made sense due to its recent unification under the Department of Defense. Today, Armed Forces Day is celebrated on the third Saturday of every May, this year falling on May 21, 2022. Check out these CGP and govinfo resources:
- Armed Forces Day Manual - 1963
- America’s military-our nation’s pride [picture] - 1992
- Directing the removal of United States Armed Forces from hostilities in the Republic of Yemen that have not been authorized by Congress.
- Certain Changes in the Defense Production Act of 1951
