Armed Forces Day

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.

Thank you.

  1. Captain America

    Another great positive piece my friend.

    There is one emblem in my eyes missing.

    They know who they are and the mission at hand.

    Many are never thanked, for that is their job.

    They do a job within a job to protect Americans.

    The United States Government in its wisdom created this organization many years ago, June 13, 1942 to be exact to fight evil and it is still fighting evil and it is a form of military that fights in the shadows its own war every single day to protect America and its interest.

    These men and women know who they, but the ordinary peoples of this great country never will for they fight in the shadows, nameless to most and sometimes to themselves for that is how it was created.

    Most writings about their operations and the methods used are negative most of the time, for within them as with all branches of the Government there are evil people as well.

    In the end goodness always defeats evil.

    To these men and women I like to thank you from all Americans for a job well done.

    With this said I will go for coffee, a smoke and a stroll and remember days long gone.

    PS: Think positive Young Republicans

  2. Captain America

    Today I looked at the headline in The Daily News and what has been going on with the Secret Service Agent and according to The Daily News this has been going on since Bush.

    Laughing to myself The Daily News putting thoughts into people's minds about Bush.

    That's right reader Bush is to blame!

    Thinking Bush is a Republican and these negative thoughts, is this because its election year?

    Of Course! Of Course!

    The Democratic Party is a party I will always repeat myself of:

    The Four S's Slavery, Secession, Segregation and Socialism.

    I will add a new S - Scams.

    As I think I gave Perry and Craig the answers in a letter with fact sheets why The Republican Party was formed in 1856 and all the positive things past Republican Presidents have done.

    I told both of them what is needed to defeat The Democratic Party.

    I wrote only a fraction of the positive things that have been done by The Republican Party for the little people, but there is so much more.

    The people who are in charge of the Republican Party nation wide have to tell all peoples, especially the Blacks, Hispanic, Chinese and all new immigrants to this country why The Republican Party was formed and give them the facts which are in black and white and show how The Democratic Party reacted with it's negative ways, lies, scams, etc.

    Lets see The Democratic Party LIE their way out of this.

    What is needed is just to let the people think who is really for them.

    The tide has to change for once the truth is released,those that are good and in The Democratic Party now will have to switch to The Republican Party for in their hearts they will realize they have been lied to for years and years.

    Think positive Young Republicans for we will be the Victor in the end.

    Should we start this in Brooklyn and be The First To Give The People The Facts?

    Should we share the thought nationwide with our fellow Republicans?

    Think what is needed guys.

    Captain America: I will continue this another day for I am out for a walk in the Rain

    In the end WE will checkmate all!
