Title: Armed Forces Day
Post by: Chase on May 20, 2007, 04:45:47 PM
For those U.S. citizens who fly the stars and stripes on special days, today's one of them.  Until 1949, we celebrated separate army, navy, marine, and coast guard days.  With the new U.S. Air Force added, it was decided to consolidate them into Armed Forces Day on the third Sunday of May.

I only celebrate a fifth of the day for 4.8 hours in the afternoon.  Go, Army!
