Honor and support the military men and women that have or currently serve our country.
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 the Department of Defense.*
