Armed Forces Day is a joint celebration of all six branches of the U.S. military: Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Marine Corps, Navy, and the newly created Space Force. The day honors all people currently serving in the U.S. armed forces. This includes the men and women who have served or are serving in the Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force, Space Force and Coast Guard, including the National Guard and Reserve components.
You can demonstrate your gratitude to the men and women who have served and currently serving in the United States Armed Forces:
Offer a simple thank you. Sometimes this is the most honest expression of gratitude to those who serve our country.
Talk to veterans or active service members. Ask questions about their service, why they joined the military, and listen to their stories. A little interest can go a long way.
Offer to help a military spouse. While expressing gratitude to service members is encouraged, so is helping out their families. Offer to cook a meal, drive them somewhere or watch their children for a few hours.
