Today is Armed Forces Day — a national day to celebrate members of our military for their service to our country.

When President Harry Truman designated this day a holiday in 1951, he requested that his fellow citizens “display the flag of the United States … and by fitting exercises to demonstrate their recognition of the gallantry, sacrifice, and devotion to duty of the men and women of the armed forces.”
