May 20th
Armed Forces Day Third Saturday in May

Armed Forces Day is a day to pay tribute to the men and women who serve the United States Armed Forces.  Armed Forces Day, which is celebrated on the third Saturday in May, is part of Armed Forces Week.
It was with the idea for citizens to come together and thank our military members for their patriotic service in support of our country that President Harry S. Truman led the effort to establish this single holiday. The one-day celebration then stemmed from the unification of the Armed Forces under the Department of Defense.  It was on August 31, 1949, that Secretary of Defense Louis Johnson announced the creation of an Armed Forces Day to replace separate Army, Navy, Marine Corps, U.S. Coast Guard and Air Force Days.
Parades, open houses, receptions and air shows were held to celebrate the first  Armed  Forces  Day held on May 20, 1950.
  • 1962 – President John F. Kennedy established Armed Forces Day as an official holiday.
  • The United States longest running city-sponsored Armed Forces Day Parade is held in Bremerton, Washington.
  • 2012 – Bremerton celebrated the 64th year of the Armed Forces Day Parade.
