This month gives the nation a time and place on which to focus and draw attention to our many expressions of appreciation and recognition of our armed services via numerous venues and also to recall and learn about our vast American history.

National Military Appreciation Month (May 2012) includes Loyalty Day (1st), Military Spouse Appreciation Day (11th), VE Day(8th), Armed Forces Day (19th), and Memorial Day (30th) which is observed on the 28th this year. This very important month honors, remembers, recognizes and appreciates all military personnel; those men and women who have served throughout our history and all who now serve in uniform and their families as well as those Americans who have given their lives in defense of our freedoms we all enjoy today.

So while we grill those burgers and dogs on Monday the 28th, please take a moment of silence at 3:00pm – no matter where you are – and in your own way remember those that paid the ultimate sacrifice and those that continue to protect the freedom we enjoy on a daily basis.
