Honoring Our Service Men and Women,
Past and Present
Armed Forces Day is celebrated on the third Saturday in May. Thanks to President Harry S. Truman, it’s a day to pay special tribute to the men and women of the Armed Forces. President Truman led the effort to establish a holiday in order for citizens to unite and to honor our military heroes for their patriotic service in support of the United States of America.
We will recognize Armed Forces Day on Sunday, May 22, 2022.
Please send the names of any current service members, their branch of service and year they started to Denise Kanfield, email@example.com by 5/20.
Memorial Day is a Federal holiday observed on the last Monday in May. It is meant for remembering and honoring military personnel who died in the service of their country, particularly those who died in battle, or as a result of a wound sustained in battle.
Join us on Sunday, May 29, 2022, after our 9:00 a.m. worship service to recognize the men and women of our community who gave their lives in service to our country.
