I’m a little late to the party today due to our schedule getting a last-minute rearrangement. However, Conservative Belle is on the ball and has a great post about today. You can also read about the history of Armed Forces Day here on the US Department of Defense website.
Today is meant to be a day to take a moment to appreciate the sacrifices made by our military. However, I’m of the opinion that that day is every day.
So, how will you express your gratitude on this day? A few suggestions (again, courtesy of Conservative Belle!) are:
Thank a soldier personally, volunteer at a veterans’ hospital/home, send a support letter to a family member of a fallen soldier, adopt a soldier through Soldiers’ Angels, help a family whose spouse is serving overseas, or just say a little prayer for their continued safety.
To every brave soldier serving in our armed forces: My family and I are extremely grateful to you and others like you who are defending our home and freedom, and standing up for those who cannot. Thank you, and God Bless You!
