"SUPPORT OUR TROOPS"
"I look forward to a great future for America - a future in which our country will match its military strength with our moral restraint, its wealth with our wisdom, its power with our purpose." ~ John F. Kennedy (35th President of the United States of America (USA), January 20, 1961 – November 22, 1963)
My hubby and I recently (May 22, 2016) attended "The Vietnam Traveling Memorial Wall" exhibit/events. This photo was taken by my hubby and I'm posting it in honor of National Military Month (May 1-31, 2016). As I have mentioned in the past, I have a nephew in the Marines and a first cousin in the Air Force. They both have served in Iraq. Also, my father is a retired Army veteran.
My gallery of "The Vietnam Traveling Memorial Wall" is here:
"Congress designated May as National Military Appreciation Month in 1999 to ensure the nation was given the opportunity to publically demonstrate their appreciation for the sacrifices and successes made by our service members - past and present. Each year the president makes a proclamation, reminding Americans of the important role the U.S. Armed Forces have played in the history and development of our country."
"May was selected because it has most days set aside for celebrating and commemorating our military's achievements. These days include Loyalty Day, which was established in 1921, Victory in Europe (VE) Day commemorating the end of WWII in Europe on May 8, 1945, Armed Forces Day created in 1949, Military Spouse Appreciation Day established in 1984, and of course the best known of the May holidays, Memorial Day."
