Armed Forces Day

Here's a link to events around the nation honoring Armed Forces Day.

This is from the History of Armed Forces Day - an excerpt from the New York Times which seems very appropriate for today:

...According to a New York Times article published on May 17, 1952: "This is the day on which we have the welcome opportunity to pay special tribute to the men and women of the Armed Forces ... to all the individuals who are in the service of their country all over the world. Armed Forces Day won't be a matter of parades and receptions for a good many of them. They will all be in line of duty and some of them may give their lives in that duty."...

There are protests scheduled for today at recruiting stations around the country, and many of the stations that will be heavily protested will close.  Of course, that doesn't mean that the recruiters won't be working.  So, if you see a recruiter out today (or anyone in uniform for that matter), buy him a coffee or lunch.

That would send a supportive message on this Armed Forces Day.
