Armed Forces Day is celebrated on the third Saturday in May. This year it is celebrated on Saturday, May 19, 2018. 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. Although, originally, there were single day celebrations for each branch of the military, the Army, Navy, Marine Corps, and Air Force; this format changed on August 21, 1949, when Secretary of Defense Louis Johnson announced the creation of Armed Forces Day. Stemming from the unification of the Armed Forces under the Department of Defense, the annual celebration now commemorates all branches of the military during one solitary day.
The 39 MDG Change of Command Ceremony is tomorrow. Walk-ins and normal operations will begin at 0930, with scheduled appointments starting at 1000. For Emergencies, call 0112. Ambulance Services and on call providers will be available for urgent medical needs, and can be reached at 676-6554.
