As a nation, we observe
and participate in various national cultural and social awareness
events through mass media attention and educational curriculum.
However, we have not allocated appropriate recognition of the most
important presence in the world today, an entity that impacts each
and every American in a significant way, the Armed Forces of the
United States of America.
Appreciation Month (NMAM), as designated by Congress, provides a
period encompassing both the history and recognition of our armed
services with an in-depth look at the diversity of its individuals
achievements. It allows Americans to educate each generation on
the historical impact of our military through the participation of
the community with those who serve encouraging patriotism and love
