In honor of Armed Forces Day, I would like to offer my *salute* to all the people in all of our military branches today. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for your dedication and service. You are what makes America the free nation that it is.

President Harry Truman proclaimed the first Armed Forces Day (AFD) on May 20, 1950. Every year since then, on the third Saturday in May we’ve honored the men and women who have served in uniform – in war and in peace – since the nation’s founding.
