Since 1949, Americans have joined other countries around the world in celebrating Armed Forces Week (beginning 2nd Saturday in May), culminating in Armed Forces Day (3rd Sunday in May). Every U.S. military branch – Navy, Army, Air Force, Marines and Coast Guard – is recognized, remembered and honored. This year, Armed Forces Day falls on May 21st.
If you know an active military service member, now’s a great time to send a heart-warming greeting card. It’s a great way to stay in touch – tell a loved one you miss them, support our troops, or thank a friend for their dedication to duty and service to their country. Sending cards and letters is so important because nobody appreciates mail from friends and family like a man or woman serving far away from home!
At last! In sight of home again,
Of home again;
No more to range and roam again
As at that bygone time?
No more to go away from us
And stay from us? –
Dawn, hold not long the day from us,
But quicken it to prime!
If you haven’t already gotten in touch with your favorite soldier, sailor, airman or Marine, there’s plenty of time to pick a unique card, add your own message, and we’ll take care of the rest.
