USA Patriotism! sincerely thanks the brave ones, who proudly serve in the U.S. Armed Forces ... going beyond self for country's sake!
Armed Forces Day was created on August 31, 1949, by then-Secretary of Defense, Louis Johnson, to replace separate Army, Navy and Air Force Days. The event stemmed from the Armed Forces’ unification under one Department of Defense by then-President Harry S. Truman when he signed the National Security Act into law on July 26, 1947.
